Three days ago I was thinking while in the shower, “my next facebook status should be about my biggest pet peeve lately – people who put on a show for others to make themselves look better. Get real or go home, that’s my motto.” Then I thought, “wow, I really need to work on being more merciful.”
(Random thought for the shower, huh? I really don’t know why I was thinking that, but I was.)
Anyways, two days ago I took a couple of spiritual gifts tests on-line, just for fun.
(See, this post here? you are getting a glimpse inside my exciting, exciting life.)
Guess what I scored the lowest on. Really, guess.
Mercy came in dead last.
What’s the weirdest part about all this?
K-love has been encouraging listeners to come up with a word for 2011. A word that symbolizes what you want to focus on this year.
And I had been thinking about mercy as my word.
Coincidence? I think not.
p.s. – just in case you want to see what your spiritual gifts are… here are links to the tests I took:
I liked the first one better, but I felt they were both pretty accurate. The second one you can print out and score manually, if you like, and it also has a page for definitions.
