Lol! Nothing like a little mutiny...  :coverlaugh:  No, wait - I've got it! A Tea Party!     :th_laugh1:



Is looseleaf tea as big a deal down there as it is up here right now? We have whole stores popping up that sell nothing but looseleaf tea. My friends are big into it. I like it too, but I can't be bothered with all the little details - this kind steeps for so long, that kind for so long longer, etc. I just brew it and drink it. :frog:

I will post easyer topics soon, I can feel the tension here, Thank you guys for supporting me here. This is a great website.


My friend (converted Hindu lady with Sikh children (Sikh father - now left the family & divorced his wife)) had been discouraged by TV preachers saying "if you were a Christian you would be out there doing great things for God." The children have not come to Christ.


I encouraged her by pointing to the little people in Scripture - the followers of the BIG names. We looked at Jeremiah's faithful friend & secretary Baruch to whom was given the word of encouragement:

Jer: 45:1 The word that Jeremiah the prophet spake unto Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying , 2 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch; 3 Thou didst say , Woe is me now! for the LORD hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest. 4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The LORD saith thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down , and that which I have planted I will pluck up , even this whole land. 5 And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest .


Our calling is to be faithful servants, prayer supporters, etc. It is for God to do the great things. In troubled times Habakkuk learnt: 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Indeed, if God calls us to be a janitor then it's a great thing to obey God in that!


Just because someone might have a more public role or seem to have a bigger or better gift of service than another, that's just our human perception. What's important to God is if we fulfill the role He calls us to, whether that be a big name evangelist or the church janitor or any other role.


If we are in God's will, we are doing "great things" for God.
