One thing I learned as a student was never give the teacher an idea. One of my Brazilian friends living in Winnipeg Canada missed a few weeks of online lessons with me. One week she was on vacation and the second week she was busy catching up with her work. She sent me a message on Facebook saying she can meet this afternoon. Then she joked with me asking if I was going to give her 2 quizzes because she missed lessons.
I actually had not thought of giving her a quiz until she sent me the message. Then I thought, “good idea.” I thought 2 quizzes would be good for her. It was her idea after all.
I was not thinking about giving her 2 quizzes until she brought it up. If you are a student, let that be a lesson for you, never volunteer anything to a teacher the teacher has not thought of. 🙂 lol
Fortunately for us, we can’t really give Jesus any ideas. He knows everything already and knows his plan for us. He is never surprised by anything and doesn’t need our help to come up with ideas.
But if we seek him and listen, he can help us come up with ideas for ministry and life. He will guide us into what he has planned for us and created us to be. Ephesian 2:10 says:
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Now I need to write the 2 quizzes for my friend from Brazil. 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
