I love adjectives. They have always been my favorite part of speech. Description words. They make a dog, a big, furry, brown dog. They make a flower become a long stemmed, red rose. They make a book be a story of long lost love, rekindled.
Words also describe my experience from Church services yesterday.
I am still energized and uplifted from the worship service and Sunday School yesterday. I get excited when we have such good, thought provoking studies with others and then to hear God's word spoken so intensely.
In the book of Acts, Luke writes (I like to imagine him as an original blogger) about the places they visit and the believers they make and meet along the way.
I love the words he uses to describe the people from Berea. He said they are noble minded, eager to receive the word, and studious.
Wow, they sound like a great group.
I wonder if someone would describe me using any of those words and all three, well I can strive to be like the Bereans.
How would you be described?
Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Therefore many of them believed, along with a number of prominent Greek women and men. (Acts 17:11, 12 NASB)
