March Madness - Day 15

Create opportunities instead of waiting for opportunities!

Do you know what is coming up in just a few weeks?

Hopefully you guessed it....EASTER!

Easter is celebrated by different people for different reasons.

For some, Easter is about the Easter bunny, candy filled eggs and Spring colored outfits.

For some, Easter is just the natural term for the spiritual celebration of Christ's resurrection.
(Don't forget that the resurrection is only possible because of the birth, death, and burial.)

For some, Easter is about both. All things to be happy and appreciative about.

As I think about Easter, there is one thing that flashes in my head daily. That one thing is Matthew 25:40. It reads, "....whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

That's compassion.
That's service.
That's love.

Outreach activities please God in a tangible way. In a way that honors Him and His sacrifice.

There will be many churches, and maybe even a few organizations, that show up for some form of community service between March 30-April 1. But individuals can also serve.

In service to the least of these...
Will you create an opportunity? 
OR 
Will you sit back and wait for an opportunity to come?

They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
