A Couple Guys, A Big Idea and Deciding to Start
I told you yesterday about a group of people who got an idea to build a school in the bush in Northern Uganda. A couple of them packed up their things, moved to an empty field in Africa and just started building. That’s it. They just started. And they were so busy thinking about all of the possibilities, they forgot about all of the obstacles.
Jesus talked a lot about just starting too. He said that if we just started, it could change everything. And a couple people took Him up on it. He also said that if they just started, they’d risk being misunderstood. He told His friends that people would even think they were crazy for living thier lives this way – but like the disciples, these guys packed up their things and went with Him into this adventure. They didn’t have a plan or a committee or even tools; just a big idea about a big God. God, who came as a kid, who said He loves kids and said we’d learn a lot from kids too, if we’d just make time and a place for them in our lives. This group of people decided to make time and a place for 250 kids. Look at what’s happening.
What seems impossible to you, that you’re ready to start?
