From time to time I have seen this little old lady and her outstanding feature is that she has an "attitude"!!! In this case its an attitude towards housecleaning, but as far as I can tell, it could be any one of a thousand or more topics. She has an unusual way of looking at things and therefore does unusual actions. Thinking about this, I thought of the book of Acts and considered both the normal and abnormal expectations for Paul...
Acts, Chapter 18
1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth. 2 He found a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by race, who had recently come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome. He came to them, 3 and because he practiced the same trade, he lived with them and worked, for by trade they were tent makers. 4 He reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded Jews and Greeks. 5 But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. 6 When they opposed him and blasphemed, he shook out his clothing and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am clean. From now on, I will go to the Gentiles!”
Paul had contradictions. He would do practically anything, go anywhere, suffer hardships and patiently preach and teach. BUT, he had limits too. When Barnabus wanted to take John Mark with them in Acts chapter 15, Paul strongly disagreed and here in Acts 18 Paul gave up on the Jews and changed his ministry to service for the Gentiles. Sometimes, you just have to change the way you do things, no matter how dramatic that change may be. Oh, that life were so simple that you could just put your problems into a file and delete them. Maybe I'll try the "housework" remedy, but I don't have high hopes!!! As far as the rest of my life goes... I am still working on just following the Bible. That should take me a long, long way!!! Try it, you will like it. And you don't even need a computer!!!!!
