I’m just curious. Is there someone in the Bible that you can really relate to? Someone who stands out the most as being like you in personality? Struggles? Circumstance? Temptations?
I’m not sure I know who my person would be. I certainly relate to David’s love for singing and dancing and praising the Lord. I like Mary’s thoughtfulness as she ponders what it will mean to see her Lord become flesh. I really respect how Ruth acted towards Naomi, her mother-in-law. I love my own mother-in-law, and I can’t imagine not having her in my life. I feel like at times I resemble Mary, listening at the feet of the Savior, and other times I’m like Martha, too busy with my own tasks to slow down and see what matters. I can relate to Bathsheeba in that I want to be seen as beautiful by the man I adore (though, the difference would be that that man is my husband). I can even relate to Samson. I mean, how hard would it be to keep a secret from the person you love?
I haven’t figured out who my person is yet. Maybe I will by the end of the day. But I’m really interested to see the Bible person you all relate to most and why. So, who is it?
