Sons of Thunder
Have you ever given up a position for that of another of success. Well for what you think is success. Not necessarily for the fact that you’re passionate for the position and it’s responsibilities, but because you desire the prestige and benefits of the position.
I’m sure if you’re reading this, then you haven’t had such a decision. You’re probably the person who does all things for all the right reasons. Although this writing may not be for you directly, I’m sure it can help a distant cousin of yours.
What’s the real issue with wanting a better life for yourself? Sure you probably don’t want to suffer like that of most of the people that you admire. I’m sure there are tons of performers who wish to have the following, fame and market share as that of Beyoncé. Likewise there are many who may desire an empire like that of Donald Trump or even something much greater. Perhaps fame and wealth is not a desire of the heart for you, maybe you’re someone who desires the benefits of a simple and peaceful life. A family that loves one another and defines the words; commitment, love and honesty. Regardless of what your desire currently is, I’m more than sure that we all can find at least one person, organization or business that is accomplishing what you desire in some similarity.
James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, and He surnamed them Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder; (Mark 3:17 AMP)
I wonder why they were called the sons of thunder? We don’t truly know the reason for that, but one thing can say is that they were brothers and are from a father who was affluent in wealth with a lucrative fishing business. It was custom in those days that the son(s) would take over the fathers business/kingdom.
