Don't go to this website if you don't want to have your lifestyle challenged.
I went to church with Jada last week and the Sunday School teacher read from a book called The Irresistible Revolution (order it here or here). The author, Shane Claiborne, is a part of this group/organization/community called The Simple Way. His book and the way that these people live is causing me to really examine the way that I live. I want to live the gospel instead of just studying it. I want to impact the lives of the people living in poverty here in Austin. I want to help them and show them that they are loved. There are so many men and women on the street corners with next to nothing. How can I justify buying the things that I want without thinking of those who have nothing at all?
The quote that has been most on my mind from the book is a quote that the author says came from the mouth of Mother Teresa.
"We are called not to be successful but to be faithful."
I want to be faithful to God and live in a way that glorifies HIM.
Jesus says that the first shall be last and the last shall be first. What does that mean in my life?
