Chapter 17: Corner Store Economics (pg 109)
Quote of the Day:
“Jesus was always talking about a reverse economy. He talked about how if you want to receive, you give. If you want to lead, you follow. That the poor are rich and you only really live for certain things if you are willing to die to them. What I learned from the storekeeper that day, in retrospect, is eerily familiar and shows me that we have more power than we think to make our own rules about life to live out the economy that Jesus put in place.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 112
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Putting Love into Action:
Be the storekeeper to someone in your life that has a need this week. Find a chance to make a difference, just because. It may not add up, but sometimes following Jesus means doing the math differently. Give a little help or grace or a shiny penny to someone in your path.
Has there been a time or situation in your life where the math didn’t add up? Was there someone that made up a new rule to help you?
