This is not an insult. Just stick with me for a second.
In the blogging world, there’s awards for everything. On the “Circle of Moms” they crown the Top 25 Blogs in a boatload of categories: couponing, cooking, decorating, party planning, travel, homeschooling, beauty, fashion, vegan, fitness, outdoorsy, single moms, adoption, and more. You name it, they crown it and yes –they even have a Christian Mom Blog category.
I’ve been in the running a few times for these awards and it’s been awkward for me…I mean – really…should I try to get votes for an award for sharing Jesus on-line? Probably not. It’s awkward…but I have to humbly admit –I’ve participated and accepted the awards.
Elizabeth Elliot once said “as the people cheered for Jesus, the donkey did not pause and accept the praise as his own. It was the rider who was being praised – NOT the donkey.”
I Corinthians 3:7 “So, neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow.”
“People talk of the sacrifice I have made in spending so much of my life in Africa…I never made a sacrifice. We ought not to talk of ‘sacrifice’ when we remember the great sacrifice which He made who left His Father’s Throne on high to give Himself for us.”
