On Thursday morning I stay at home and teach my youngest, Caleb. Yes, we home school (insert joke or militant statement here.) and it has been a great experience for us. But that is not the topic of this post. The topic is that the first thing that Caleb did this morning was to pull out his Kids’ City 3C Journal (the pic to your right is a Kids’ City 3C Journal), read some from the Bible, reflected on it and wrote down a few things along with prayer. First thing! I love that. And I am grateful to our Kids’ City staff for not only creating this 3C Journal but also reinforcing the value that kids need to start their day with God.
Just yesterday I was working on a book outline with Jon and we ran into our good buddy Scott Hodge at a Starbucks where we hang out and we were talking about how it all comes down to something this simple: hearing from God and courageously obeying Him everyday! That is it! It really is that simple.
- My life would be all that God meant for it to be if I would just hear from God and courageously obey Him everyday!
- Community would be exactly the kind of church God meant for it to be if we would all just hear from God and courageously obey Him everyday!
- The mission of Jesus: all people finding their way back to Him and every man, woman and child living with hope for today and eternity would happen, if we would all just hear from God and courageously obey Him everyday!
It really is that simple – hearing from God and courageously obeying Him everyday! Way to go Caleb!
