Monday Musings (7/22/13)

judeDear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In worship this weekend we continued to talk about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. We talked about what it means to reach out to the poor and vulnerable of our world. So how do you help those in need? We also talked about what it means to love God more than all the stuff we have. Recently we have implemented technology free days with our girls. This is in an effort to get them away from the computers, tablets, tv, etc. We want them to be outside, playing with each other and enjoying the great summer weather. Perhaps in our lives we need a stuff free day. A day when we don’t buy anything, when we don’t look at anything new, and a day where we only do those things that we have to (like cooking, etc) . On that day spend your time with God. Spend your time in God’s Word and in prayer. Take a long walk and enjoy God’s creation and as you do talk to God. Just some things to think about as we all try to be more like Jesus. As we try to reach out and help as he did and as we try to make God the priority in our lives let us do so in Love for all of the brothers and sisters within the fellowship.

Along the Journey,
Pastor Jude
