we wait :: 5

I love this description of how Jesus lived when He was here on the earth. we like to create who Jesus was, but when we read who His friends said He was (from the Gospels in the Bible), we get the REAL picture. just like if someone asked OUR friends who we are. it's way more accurate than someone that just reads your blog or Instagram and creates WHO you are, right?

"Jesus ate and drank so often that his enemies accused him of being a drunk and a glutton- a friend of sinners. In the eyes of the Pharisees, Jesus was a wild party animal who ate to excess, drank to excess, and lounged around with the lowest of the low. He was the first to arrive and the last to leave. When Jesus showed up to the meal, he brought the party. He reclined himself at the table and stayed well into the evening, long after any upstanding person would have gone home."

Thank you for this, Lori!
