The other day, Joel Osteen posted the following on Twitter:
I’m so grateful Jesus doesn’t follow this advice.
Jesus “wasted” his time on John the Baptist, even when John didn’t fully appreciate who Jesus was.
Jesus didn’t give up on his mother and his brothers, even when they thought he was out of his mind.
Jesus was infinitely patient with his disciples, even when they couldn’t understand the most obvious of his parables.
Jesus didn’t reject Peter, even when Peter tried to persuade him not to die on the cross.
Jesus didn’t wash his hands of his disciples, even when they were competing with each other over who was the greatest.
Jesus was kind and gracious to James and John, even when they wanted to have the places of honor on his right and on his left.
Jesus didn’t obliterate Peter, even when Peter vehemently denied ever knowing Jesus.
Jesus “wasted” his time on Thomas, even though Thomas refused to believe Jesus had risen from the dead.
