Today I came across a sentence in Matthew 24 that really got me thinking.
It said, "As Jesus was sitting".
He was sitting.
I don't know why that phrase has me so fascinated.
Sitting would mean that he had stopped to sit down.
In the course of the day I find it incredibly hard to just sit down. Let everything be placed on hold and sit down.
Stop. Sit. Let stuff go.
The ministry did not stop while he sat down. The ministry opportunity came to him as he sat.
In the course of any given day, I wander what would happen if I took more time to stop and sit. What conversations would take place?
With a chair, Bible and a pen.
After some thought, I bet one of the things our enemy does to us as women is to create many reasons why we should not stop and sit.
