As we study the Bible, we may believe we are far removed from the people described on those pages. After all, many played significant roles in helping Jesus spread the gospel. Most of us find it difficult if not impossible to picture ourselves in that disciple-type role because we are sinful and don't always make the wisest decisions.

In Characters of the Bible: Finding My Stories in Their Stories, author David Waddell shares his discovery of his similarity to characters in the Bible. He found a relationship with the woman in John 8:111. He saw himself in a crowd of Pharisees urging punishment of a woman who did something they had done or wanted to do. Waddell was the woman looking for love in all the wrong places. He was the woman at the mercy of Jesus who was forgiven of all her sins without defending herself. Waddell realized the connection he had with biblical characters because like him, and like us, they were sinful. And if were truthful with ourselves, we can be mean, deceitful, conniving, and abusing, just like many people described in the Bible. Yet God used them for His purposes, and He will use us if we let Him.

I love chatting with David Waddell. He always makes me laugh. His humor and the ability to laugh at himself as well show us the humor the Lord has in many situations is always wonderful to reflect upon so join me in the conversation on Tuesday, December 5th at 7:00 pm Eastern time.
