I’ve been hungering books lately, maybe just reading in general – so I’ve started to read The Case for Christ, but Lee Strobel, something that stood out at me tonight while I was reading was the fact that ancient Greek and Hebrew languages [of which the bible was originally written] did not have a mark for quotations. The reason why…. as Lee Strobel writes in an interview with Dr Craig Blomberg: “the only purpose for which they thought history was worth recording was because there was some lesson to be learned from the characters described…”
This struck me very interesting – what it made me realize was how much more important my actions are over my words. Granted there is a time and place for words but in reality my actions speak louder.
my goal in the next couple weeks: to ‘live with out quotations’.
