There is a quiz on facebook you can take that will tell you what Bible character you are most like. But, I just want to ask YOU, who do you identify with the most in the Bible?
I've been thinking about this a lot lately, I am not quite sure why, just because it is kind of fun. Am I a little Esther-y? Are there shadows of Paul within me? Whose story speaks the most to me?
I think what I've concluded is that I am a Timothy. Timothy and I share a lot of things in common. First, we come by our faith through a long line of faithful women. Secondly, like Timothy, I struggle with timidity and introversion even though I truly believe God is calling/ has called me to be in a position of leadership. We both sometimes allow others look down upon us for reasons that are irrelevant to God.
The good news is that by figuring out who I am "most" like in the Bible, I can find a great "how to" on becoming better. Paul's letters to Timothy in 1 Timothy and 2 Timothy, speak so directly to my heart, especially at times when I have assumed positions of leadership. Now, I just need to find my Paul...
Here's to finding your reflection in His word...
Until next time,
Your Turn: (PLEASE respond in my comments, if you are so inclined...)
1.) What Bible character are you most like and why?
2.) What words speak directly to your heart?
3.) Why do you think the Bible is a book of stories about people? Is it so that we can see ourselves in these words?
