Reflections From the Heart of Allan Redenius
Lately, I’ve been thinking to myself, “I need to get a hobby.” But which one should I choose?
Let’s try fishing. First of all, the fish never bite. If they do, it was always yesterday, or they will bite tomorrow. Now if I do catch one, then I have to clean it. Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes I fish without bait. 😊 I’m fishing, but not really. Why do I do that? Once upon a time, an elderly lady gave me this advice. “God doesn’t mark time when you’re fishing.” Umm….
How about golf? Way, way too much time. Besides, have you ever heard a golfer rejoice over how he played?
My wife says, “Play pickleball.” Now, I do enjoy that sport. Like most things, she’s so much better than I am. If only I didn’t have that blind spot in the middle of my eye. Whiff…that often happens as I miss the ball. (Just so ya know, I really am blind in the center of one eye.) ☹
Let’s do some reading. My whole life has been devoted to reading two books, both law books. In my first career as a C.P.A., all I read was tax law. Now, the only book I read is the Bible, which is even a greater law of command, and a whole lot more enjoyable!
No hobby for me, so I guess I’ll just keep on working for the Lord. Besides, is Jesus going to ask me about my hobby, or will He ask if I followed His command, “Go and make disciples?” Maybe I’ll make working for the Lord my number one hobby! I think that will work. If you are looking for something to do, come and join me!
Just lovin’ Jesus,
