Something More

The moment you stop caring what other people think — is most likely when you start doing what God wants.

 I read that quote on a friends blog today, and I have to say it is so true. We live in a fallen world. So really it makes sense that when we do things that God wants us to do, it's not going to make sense to those around us.

The world says spend your money on things you want...

Maybe an iphone,

a new truck or car,

a big house,and all the latest styles of clothes.

 The world says that to be successful you need to make your self better and better. Climbing up the ladder, bigger house, better job, nicer things.

 But is that what God says?

Maybe right now you are trying so hard to make more of yourself when God says your already enough.

Maybe you want a bigger house,  a better job, a nicer car. Those things really are nice to have. But what if God wants something more for you?

And what if to the world that something more looks like something less?

 What if it's feeding the hungry?

 Being a voice for the orphan?


Being a missionary?

Homeschooling your children?

Helping out with local foster care?

Just reaching out to those around you?

There are so many things we can do for him.  It might mean giving up on some of these things that the world offers.It might mean that the world will think your weird.

But in the end what the world thinks is something less, will fulfill you so much more.


 Psalm 82:3 Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
