Get Your Hands In There

For the last year we have been discussing serving (or our word for it, equipping) at Drink Deep on Sunday nights. I read something today that kind of fits with that:

Hearing something five hundred times is not as good as seeing it once. ~ Chinese Proverb

It's true. You can describe something until you're blue in the face but when it is seen it is better understood.

I think God's love is a lot like that. Church people love to talk about God's love, but people aren't listening. Not because they don't want to or the message is bad, but nothing beats being shown "I love you". We need to let peopel see that God loves them, it's a lot less work than telling them five hundred times.

We're talking about this Sunday night, come on out and be a part!
