My husband and I visited a missionary in June. This is a hard working couple with a difficult ministry.
God called them to work in a tribal community.
Like every group of people, this particular tribal people have some really sweet people and some not so sweet people. When they speak, there is a tonal sound to their words. I love listening to it.
The missionary has found a way to blend the tribal people and local ranchers in the church. We sat in the service with the blended group, sang with them, prayed with them, and listened to the sermon with them.

When we visited this missionary, he talked about things his wife wanted to do if she had free time, and things his daughters wanted to do if they had free time. When he finished I said, "What would you want to do if you had free time?"
The question stumped him. I don't think he had considered the question...ever. The conversation morphed into another topic, but I didn't forget.
Then I started to wonder. Jesus had a limited amount of time when He was with us. He worked hard, did what the Father asked, was kind, compassionate, giving, forgiving, firm, fair, and so much more.
I can't help but wonder, what would Jesus say if asked the question, "What would you do if you had free time?"
I really am not sure what He would say. I think it would totally depend on the time, circumstances, needs, I don't know. What did He do while resting on the 7th day of creation?
How do you think Jesus would answer the question?
If you are as stumped as I am, how about...What would you do if you had free time?
Don't forget to leave a comment, chatting is so much fun!
