From Laurie Beth Jones’ book, Jesus in Blue Jeans:
- was a hummer. He knew who he was so he could hum in the face of difficult circumstances.
- did not take things personally.
- saw Himself as the host of the party, not the guest. He served rather than was served.
- had no sense of entitlement.
- had a belly button too. He was willing to be a beginner.
- did not live the question. He lived the answer.
- gave the gift of his presence. Sometimes our presence is all that is needed.
- did not flinch in his critical moment, will you?
- master metaphors and similes to become a great communicator.
- maintain your poise by trusting your instincts. “The same stuff that lines your gut lines your brain.”
- when you are dealing with a cranky coworker, ask yourself do you think, “Jim is a jerk” or “Jim is the sandpaper that God is using to finish me to perfection? “
- know that each encounter you have with another will leave you enlarged.
- ask yourself, if you didn’t view yourself as a body, what form would you be?
- “do the thing and let them howl.”
