I appreciate Neal.
I don't always appreciate it when he sticks his finger into my ear, reprimands me in my dreams, gives me weird directions, or throws his dead skin cells in my face. But all in all, I appreciate Neal for everything he does.
The other day I was complaining about doing my devotion and reading the wrong passage. I'd read seven chapters in 1 Kings instead of four chapters in 2 Kings. Oops. Since he's our campus minister, I was really expecting him to call me out on the fact that I was complaining about reading the Word of God. Sometimes Nealio doesn't respond the way I expect (see the dead skin cells blog).
"You know how to get through those long Old Testament passages, right? Walk around, reading aloud, and act them out."
Neal's one of those people that if he gives me advice or a direct command, I should probably listen. Neal says "Jump;" I say, "How high?" Thus, I'm going to give it a try. So, if I'm walking around talking to myself: don't panic; I'm just doing my devotion.
"But don't do this with Song of Solomon," he added. Thanks.
Are you willing to look silly and try it with me?
