I’ll admit it right now, I always blink when asked to accept a Church calling.

Perhaps it is a lack of faithfulness on my part, but I tend to inform the person making the call of any information that they might not have had (such as, “We’re moving out in 4 weeks.”) that would be pertinent and then I sometimes talk it over with my wife (depending on scope of call) prior to accepting.

Perhaps if I were either more faithful or less thoughtful I would not blink.  But I do, and I then I say, “Yes.”

I do the same thing with job offers, though sometimes I say, “No.” to them.

Honestly, I don’t see blinking as a bad thing.  In fact quite the opposite.
