I have been neglectful. I was reading through some old posts and realized my friend Stephanie at Notes from the Soul had awarded me with the Mathetes Award back in October of last year... and I never passed in on. Now in my defense, I was fairly new to blogging at the time, and didn't totally "get" the whole award thing; and she also gave it to me right before I left to go to the Glorietta Christian Writers Conference, so things were just a little hectic.
To correct my over site I would like to talk a little about this award and pass it on now. Better late than never :)
The Mathetes Award was originated at Management by God by Dan King. Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) is to make more disciples. Dan created this award to recognize those acting as a disciple of Christ in their blogging. When you receive the award, you are asked to pass it along to at least five other bloggers who you feel are fulfilling this role and then to link back to Management by God.
I would like to pass this on to:
Melissa at Mel's World... I love her insight.
Kimberly at A Planting of the Lord... a new friend who sloshes out Christ when she writes.
Cheri at Pass the Salt, Please... a real life friend who has moved away :(
Elizabeth at Embracing Life... someone I have just met in the blogging world but who I am excited to read more from.
Janet at Living Oak Ministries... a real life friend who truly disciples me.
Beloved MaMa... another new friend in the blogging world.
and Sue at Praise and Coffee... She always challenges me and gets me to thinking.
Ladies... Please pass on this award and link back to Dan.
You guys truly bless me.
This is the prayer Dan prayed for the bloggers who receive this award on his post and I couldn't have said it better myself.
I pray a blessing over the bloggers that receive this award, and ask that the Holy Spirit use them mightily as they share the Word of God with the world around them. May all of their efforts be fruitful, and their words carry the anointing of the Spirit of God. In Jesus' name I pray.
