The Lord gave us eyes

 The Lord gave us eyes

You may find yourself surrounded by people who lie to you – if so, then you are going to pay attention to false information – so focus on defending the rights of the poor and you will lead for a long time.

Why?  Because our first instinct is to always trust appearances. This fact makes it relatively easy to hide one’s intentions. Simply dangle an object you seem to want, a goal you seem to aim for, in front of people’s eyes and they will take the appearance for reality. Once their eyes focus on the decoy, they will fail to notice what you’re really up to.

“If you didn’t see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears. Don’t invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth.”

 

A poor person and their oppressor have this in common—the Lord gave eyes to both of them.

One mom couldn’t do Pizza Lunch. Neither could two. But a dozen moms, with some help from the high school staff, could pull it off. What a great, simple example of mission done in community. I wonder what would happen if all Christians began to look with missional eyes at their world, and gathered a few others to join them in some new ministry.
