Jesus was an introvert

I was at a job seekers' meeting at church tonight, and the Bible lesson was about prayer.  Specifically it was an overview of the most pivotal periods of Jesus' life, with emphasis on the fact that He was regularly praying before those moments.

As is often the case when someone is talking, and I get it, and they keep talking....  My mind was racing ahead and analyzing what else I can see in this set of versus.

And besides praying, Jesus was constantly going away by Himself before and after the biggest events in His ministry.  He recharged His batteries by spending time alone.

Lots of other teachers and preachers are introverts.  There's nothing wrong with it.  But maybe I just feel a little better about being an introvert now.

  1. Yes! Introverts unite! (But I guess there's little chance of that.)
