by Marjorie Broce During
Bible class, Glenn was talking about the different things we can do
that are part of spending time with God: Thanksgiving, praise, worship,
being still and knowing that He is God, meditating on the Word,
forgiveness, asking for wisdom, praying in tongues, etc. So, Glenn was
telling them that we become like the ones that we spend time with. (We
become more like Him the more we spend time with Him).
an example and then I thought of one myself. Before I was married, I
had an awesome roommate who loved to laugh. But when she laughed, she
also snorted like a pig in between laughs. I really DID NOT like that
particular laugh and I made a note of that to myself.
living there for some time, I was laughing one day, and wouldn't you
know it, but I snorted! I could not believe it! And I snorted many
times after that when I laughed. It almost seemed like I couldn't help myself!
Of course I was demonstrating for the audience and they
thought it was hilarious. They laughed and laughed and even brought it
up in later conversations to me.
You DO become like those that you hang around with!
Thankfully, I'm freed from the snorting laugh now.
