This blog post is really about this 'n that and some more about impatience.
Thanks to all who have "followed" my blog with Google Friend Connect. If you don't have a Google account and may not want one, you can sign up in the left column to receive an email in your inbox notifying you when I post a new blog article. I appreciate all of you who are interested in my blog!
Sometimes I publish my blog in large print and sometimes in a smaller print. Which do you prefer? A sample of the smaller print is this post you're now reading. A sample of the larger print is here: http://www.johuddleston.com/2012/05/free-ebook-no-contest.html. If you have a preference, please just leave a comment with the word "smaller" or "larger." Thanks.
This is my blog and website combined at this one place. I hope you like the new design and colors of my blog. The site has several tabs at the top of the page that you can click and browse. I'm still working on some of the pages so please be patient for a while until I get it all done.
There's that word again--patience. I blogged recently about impatience. Have you thought much about the topic since my post? The blog article brought it to the forefront of my mind. I've given it a lot of thought.
You know a few years ago the big thing was WWJD: what would Jesus do. I don't recall a Scripture verse that told us Jesus was all that impatient. Oh, I suppose he was when he ran the money changers out of the temple. He probably became impatient with those who hardened their hearts in disbelief.
But for the most part I wouldn't use the word impatient to describe Jesus. The greatest description of Jesus that I hold onto is in Acts where Luke summarizes Jesus' earthly ministry by saying that He "went about doing good." (Our Daily Bread [a daily devotional], August 1, 2011 by Marvin Williams, published by Radio Bible Class Ministries.) And from that same devotional is this:
From the example of Jesus,
Who went about doing good,
We are to honor our Savior
By helping wherever He would. --Hess
Imitate Jesus--go about doing good.
