Buttafly's blogging about ..An Audacious Mind..an excerpt from T. Semakula's upcoming book titled..The Food Stamp Bandit
Those who lack audacity are mediocre, functional, average, cowardly and retarded in their thinking. Jesus is a perfect example of an audacious thinker. Jesus had the audacity to claim that he was the Son of God. He had the audacity to walk the earth, with his disciples, twelve deep, determined to deliver a message that was defined by hope and salvation. He had the audacity to be homeless, yet, all the while, knowing, that in his father’s house, there are many mansions.
Jesus was also an early proponent of utilizing critical thinking skills. He thought it barbaric to answer a question with an open ended response. He welcomed critical thinking with his numerous parables and made it clear that he had no tolerance for lazy minds. He approached simple folk with metaphors and challenged them to develop more strategic ways of applying the practicality of God’s word.
