So today was a great day!!! I started off with church in the morning, it was Vision Sunday! Pastor Trent spoke about how we each have our purpose here on earth. As Christians were are to be the light, making an impact in the world for the Lord. He talked about the 5 qualities of people who have impact… Compassion, Generosity, Discontent, Devotion to God, and people of unexpected servanthood. Not sure how else to explain, but this verse does the job…
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage… You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven”. -Matthew 5-13-16
Church was followed by a delicious lunch at Kyle’s aunt’s and uncle’s house. It was nice to know I’m still on break… especially since school starts in 3 days. Uggggh!!! Well I must not focus on that since the day is still young (no need to sulk about school). Well I hope you all had a great weekend… it comes and goes by so fast. Take care!
