Seth – I love it.. indeed the question is to small! But Brent, your heart is big! Listen, after traveling the world for a year, and now returning to what people keep calling “normal life” in America… I think understand your heart here. But listen, there are little boys in yellow shirts right here in America!!! The fast paced results oriented American lifestyle has left plenty of children spiritually fatherless! We are orphans, right here in America!
We all want to be a part of something great, to be totally sold out and spent for something greater than ourselves and there is NOTHING greater than Jesus Christ!!!
I was at a restaurant the other day and the couple next to me was so rude to the waiter. It hurt me. I pulled the waiter aside and just told him how great he was doing, and I told his manager the same. Words of encouragement was all I gave. And it changed his world that day! Later a saw a mom struggling to carry three kids and her shopping bags. I offered to help. Her heart lit up. She came alive. And so did I!!!
Jesus said… LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!! That’s it. That is our task. Love one another in Africa if you are called there, and in America if He has you here!!!
What would happen in the world, in America, if every youth group in the country had a purpose, a vision, if their hearts were alive and on fire in service to the King! What if they made little track like encouragement cards and went around the city love bombing (like track bombing) people. What if they carried the widows groceries to her car. Took a child to the park. Sat with the sick. What if instead of going to Chilies for lunch after church on Sunday we went into the community, fed the homeless, clothed the poor… held children, loved our brothers and sisters, shared the love of Christ!!! Christ with skin on!
What would happen if I did, what would happen if you did, what would happen if WE did???
