The Green Workshop
You know it when you see it on a person—glory. Everybody is walking around with evidence that they were made in the image of a glorious God, and their bodies, talents, minds, possessions, and relationships impress you for that reason. So what do you do when your cousin is richer, your sister is prettier, your friend is more talented, your coworker is more efficient, and your best friend has a better marriage? Perhaps you hate these glories when they are given to somebody else.
There’s a name for this: it’s called envy. And there’s only one way out—learning to recognize, delight in, and praise God for what he’s given to the people around you. Someday you’ll be awash in the kind of glory that makes you forget to compare.
I mentioned in a previous post about my book coming out next year that there would be some speaking events happening soon. The first of these events, The Green Workshop, will be held on Saturday morning, November 4 at Faith Presbyterian Church in Goodlettsville. This is a free event for women that runs from 9:15 to 1:30 and includes lunch. Childcare is also available. It will be consist of three 50 minute sessions, one of which will be discussion group time. This event is hosted by Reformed Baptist Church of Nashville.
The deadline to sign up is Friday, Oct. 27!
