“Stubborn Dutchman” was something I heard often growing up, used in reference to my grandfather and father both. Not that it was bandied about in a complimentary fashion very often. Another word – given the context – might have been “pig-headed”.
But let me tell you… being pig-headed, or a stubborn Dutchman, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. After all, God has used all kinds of people to achieve his ends – tax collectors, prostitutes, liars, adulterers, politicians, soldiers and poets to name a few. I daresay he might even have used me at times, and I am sure he can use you, too!
