Thought's passing by...

The last couple of days I have been feeding my brain with words from a book called:
The Year of Living Like Jesus
By: Ed Dobson
Hence my longing to be a disciple of Jesus.

In this book, the first few chapters he talks about what Jesus ate and wore. He then goes on to compare it to living in today's society and his decisions he must make for himself to LIVE as Jesus lived.

So far it is very interesting. I personally wouldn't go as far as saying I am going to dress and eat like Jesus did.
I am steering more towards his actions:
I want to Love
Have Patience
See the beauty in everyone
Learn how to speak how He spoke.
Have compassion
Not judge
Pray like he did, diligently. 

I feel like I may be a little over my head,
for the mere fact that I am human, and
I like to laugh when people trip and fall, not very Christ-like, ha ha.
(I make sure they're okay, I just can't help laughing)

We will see how I do on a daily basis, especially having to deal with customers that thoroughly enjoy giving me a hard time.


Verses I need to be reminded of often:

Matthew 12v37
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words will you be condemned. 

James 1v19-21
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. 
Because our anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 
Therefore,  get rid of all moral filth and evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you,
which can save you.
