hope you’re enjoying your saturday friends! soo.. i don’t know if i’m going to be able to keep this up people, but for now, it’s really fun 🙂 learn more about where the following prompt comes from here or click the fun blob on the left! Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it:
Don’t be in debt to anyone, except for the obligation to love each other. Whoever loves another person has fulfilled the Law. romans 13:8
james and i love being youth pastors to the high-schoolers of our church family. it also challenges us in many ways—body, soul and sugar intake. it’s easy to get caught up in how things are done. i can hear about all the crazy events that some people do and think.. are we missing something?!
not to say that we’re boring (i don’t believe we—eeespecially my husband—could ever be described as such) but our focus isn’t in events and in pizazz and bright lights, our main goal is that the youth know they are loved, supported, known, celebrated and becoming more and more the people God created to be! since that’s our goal, it’s not so much about how big we go, but more about building relationships.
that’s the reason i love this verse/quote/scripture. at the end of the day, apart from all of the odds and ends and details of life, i am thankful to know that fulfilling my purpose has to do with loving others. the midst of all that is life, i know i can usually figure that one out—a smile, a hug, a compliment, an encouragement..
can you imagine how beautiful it’d be if we all acted as if we were only in debt to one another in love?! beautiful indeed 🙂
