Barnabas Award

by adustyframe ~ May 17th, 2009


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.


*Link back to the person who gave you the award.

*Use my graphic (leaving my blog address on it)

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

*Share this explanation

“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!”

I am going to pass mine out little by little because so many of you are blessings in my life.

**Here are the 1st two installments.

Jamin at Just Call me Jamin I appreciate her kind words and her enthusiasm for home schooling!

Vicki at Windows to My Soul She sends me a note on Twitter once in awhile. I appreciate her kindness.
