See the World


We tend to view our time the same way we view our money—we spend, invest, and waste it. The question is: how does God view time? If we saw it as he sees it, it might affect the way we use our own.

Andy walked us through Psalm 90 this week: a beautiful piece of ancient poetry recording the discourse between a man and God about the brevity, meaning of, and purpose to be discovered in, this life we’re given.

The prayer for the week was a simple one. “God, help me to see the world the way you do.”

That simple change of perspective could transform everything in our lives.

So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.    Psalm 90

Do for the one…

“Do for the one what you wish you could do for everyone.”

It’s a good word. Sometimes we don’t do anything because we’re so overwhelmed by the needs that surround us, it can seem like what we have to offer can’t possibly make a difference. Our experience has taught us that it almost always can, if we start in the lives of just one or two people.

We have that opportunity before us this week. There’s a homeless couple that one of our students is doing life with. Here’s a list of their needs we can meet:

Let’s be praying for Jordan and Zeke that God will bless them and keep them. That He’ll make His face shine upon them. That He’ll turn His full countenance upon them and give them peace. (from Numbers 6:24-26)

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me….Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.  —  Jesus   (Matthew 25:35,40)
