But then again everything is related.
If you click on the pictures you will go to Jane Davenport's blog, the artist who created those pics. I absolutely love them. Her site is all about helping others get creative. It is a noble calling. To help others get in that creative zone -- when we create, as I've written before, we are doing a God thing since He is The Creator.
I read a verse today in Luke 9:48c. Jesus says, "for he who is least among you, this is the one who is great."
This is something we've heard before, but it sure isn't what we usually practice.
The "Christian world" has taken its practice and cues from the world. There are Christian celebrities, Christian marketing firms, Christian gimmicks -- and they sure look a lot like the world's gimmicks.
Life isn't about gimmicks.
Life isn't about being the best, the greatest, the most famous.
When we do things the world's way we aren't not doing it God's way.
If we do anything the world's way, we aren't doing it God's way.
In Luke 10:41-42 Jesus gently reproves Martha when she asks him to get Mary to help her. He says to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only a few things are necessary, really only one"
Think about what you do the accepted way, the world's way, the common sense way.
Have you asked God for guidance in this area?
Is His hand on this area in your life?
Do you have a worldly mindset in this area of your life?
Often, this stuff is so much a part of the way we think we don't recognize it for what it is.
