Looking Out For Her

Loved this cartoon which was up yesterday on Jordan Cooper’s blog. The article that went with it is good also. After having sat out the last year not doing much speaking or worship-leading, it would be easy for me to lose concern and passion for what goes on in the church, but I think it’s important for all of us to “keep looking out for her.” Yes, “her.”

One of my kids got confused last night when the devotional book we were reading referred to the church as “she” and “her” and I explained that this is a literary device and sometimes ships and boats are “she” also, but in this case, this is also exactly how Christ sees the church.

So if it’s not merely criticism, and you’re truly “looking out for her” then keep blogging, Jordan; and everyone else. Look out for her best interests. Nurture her. Encourage her.
