Kneading bread dough. Takes muscle action and if your muscles are not accustomed you get tired before you are finished. And then it happened. Scripture came to mind. May I share it with you? Thank you for saying yes. 🙂
Honestly only part of the verse came to mind: who for the joy that was set before him [source]. Not to worry, we will get to the rest; it’s too good to ignore. 🙂
Where I am going with this is a stretch I easily admit and obviously not the average interpretation but . . .
Okay. Come get on this thought train with me.
Kneading dough. A little work-out here. Arms, hold that tummy and even get that core working. Wonder if Baby Girl GRAND would want to learn to bake bread this summer. Hmm. This takes a while. Sure hope this comes together. Keep pressing through. Who for the joy that was set before him.
Life lesson: looking to the reward is a reason to press through and finish what we start. That is what JESUS did.
The Bread of Life pushed through agony and death to give us eternal life, redemption, salvation, forgiveness, and His forever best company in the universe forever at His House!! And in the meantime, I really don’t think He would mind if we followed His example [of pressing through for the biggest thing in eternal life] for our little things in life. Whatever those little things are like kneading dough, cleaning out the closet, mowing the lawn, weeding the garden; taking out the trash . . . I sure hope I have some young readers here 🙂
That’s it. That’s my lesson through bread kneading. So even if it does not rise and it does not taste worth eating, it wasn’t without reward. 🙂
2 looking away to the Initiator and Completer of that trusting, Yeshua — who, in exchange for obtaining the joy set before him, endured execution on a stake as a criminal, scorning the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Yes, think about him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you won’t grow tired or become despondent. [SOURCE]
Thanks for visiting with me and reading along. I appreciate you, dear friends.
