One of the first times Melissa (my wife) and I went out to eat was to a Mexican restaurant.
I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD!
It’s one of those things that, for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved and could eat everyday.
When I took Melissa, though, I didn’t realize that she wasn’t a big fan of mexican food. Not really because it tasted bad, but mostly because she didn’t know what to order when she went.
So, this day at lunch, we sit down, get our salsa and chips, order our drinks and start talking. As we’re looking over the menu, I asked, “So, what do you think you’re getting?”
Melissa responded, “A cheese quesadilla.”
You’re telling the Mexican connoisseur that you’re getting something that should be on the kid’s menu? Basically a grilled cheese?
That day, that’s what she ordered. I guess she liked it. We went back not long after that. Since being married to me, we’ve gone to mexican thousands of times (give or take a hundred or two).
In fact, the other day I asked her where she wanted to eat. She responded, “Let’s go to Mexican.”
That’s my girl!!
My point? The more time we spend with someone, the more we become like them.
Want to become more like Jesus?
Want to begin to like the things Jesus likes?
Want to begin to think like Jesus?
Spend time with him.
