Barnabas~round 2

Here are a couple more bloggers that I’d like to share my Barnabas Award with.

Stephanie at A High and Noble Calling

Ame at Ame’s Pieces

*Here’s what I wrote to explain this award.

I was praying about some things about this blog and I thought about an Award. I didn’t want it to be cheesy and I didn’t want to do it “just to do it”.

Then I thought about Barnabas and how he stood in the gap and encouraged Paul. Barnabas commended Paul to the believers when they were afraid to accept him and his conversion. Barnabas was also known for giving.

Acts 11:23 says about him,

“Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.”

I have a LOT of Barnabas type people in my life and so I decided to make it an award.

If you receive a Barnabas award it’s because you’re an encourager and I want you to share it with anyone who is your encourager.

I’m not going to put rules on it for how many you have to tag–just share it with whomever encourages you.

*Share it with anyone who encourages you whether or not their blog is “spiritual”.

“Barnabas worked with the Apostle Paul.

We remember him for his encouragement and generosity. In this spirit, I’d like to let you know that you are a Barnabas in my life. Thank you!”
