common good

Many talks lately are about COMMUNITY. I am frequently thinking – Come In Unity.

It’s not surprising we have different ideas of what community means.

How many communities are you a part of?

You could have a different community for where you live, worship, work, learn, shop, play, exercise and talk. Exclusive communities for all of these things are often more of a COMMUNE. To my mind that is a bit selfish (Come U & ME) because it doesn’t usually benefit those outside of it.

Some lyrics that keep coming to mind.

For the sake of the world
Burn like a fire in me
Light a flame in my soul
For every eye to see…

Which leads me to think – Go into the WHOLE world and make disciples.

Sometimes our world is a block away, the restaurant, school or another country. Maybe the world comes to you.

His Word does not say, be comfortable and safe.

It says, “Follow Me.”

  1. Thanks Judi for the great reminder – sometimes I get so busy taking care of my business I forget about the Lord’s business
    I know where my heart and actions should be!
    God Bless
