Chapter 23: Friends, Welcome Home (pg 151)
Quote of the Day:
“When I don’t know the answer to where I am or what God wants me to be doing, which is often, I try to get a bearing on at least a couple of fixed points that I can trust. One is Jesus. I know it sounds like a canned Sunday school answer, and I tend not to like those, but it’s true. I take a bearing off what I know about Jesus. But it’s a Jesus who isn’t encumbered by religion, denomination, and cultural overlays. I look at what He had to say about where I am and then I draw a line from Jesus to me.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 155
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Putting Love into Action:
Bob talked about a group of people in his life – kind of like a cabinet. People with areas of wisdom and experience that he uses to bounce ideas off of and get input. Do you have a cabinet group in your life? Jot down the names of people that God has placed in your life with wisdom and experience. Start reaching out to those people for input when you’re struggling with a particular decision.
Has there been a time when you made a midcourse correction in your journey? Did you leave behind the almanacs and end up pointing in the general direction leading to God?
