This is a Test...

Tests aren’t good or bad. Tests aren’t punitive. A test is only a test. They’re given that we might know where we stand and often they’re given just prior to promotion.

All about me people are in the midst of finals, spiritual finals, emotional finals and relational finals. Promotions and graduations can’t be far off.

Now pay attention, I’m about to offer you some vital information. Consider for a minute, if I were a course professor and I told you we were having a test at the end of the week... and, if I provided you with the specific topics to be covered. Needless to say this would give you every opportunity to be well prepared and to pass the test. I’ve been able to identify three current areas of testing:

Humility, Loyalty & Longevity.

In my next few posts I plan to cover each in greater detail. For now, suffice it to say that humility means to stay low, loyalty means to stay faithful and longevity means to simply stay.

Now go study…

  1. I can't wait to hear the rest. I want to make I'm fully prepared.

  2. I can't wait for it to be over :>)
    NOT your blogs :>)
    The testing :>(
    I guess that means I am weak in the longevity department.
    But it is very helpful to me, that you put it in such a way that we need to prepare for that final test, before we can graduate.
    As long as I know there is an end in sight, and a goal to be reached. That will float my boat. Looking forward to the rest of your blogs

  3. you rock Z man... but what if I don't WANT to be promoted? I mean, who needs a title in a cave?

    (thanks, though... I probably could stand a little cramming)
