poetic language

I'm sick of poetic language used to make things look more beautiful or cool than what they really are, drawing crowds of people who, when it comes down to it, don't understand it except that it's cool and that's why they're getting involved, putting on t-shirts and saying "I'm part of something that matters." But their hearts aren't in it in love, but in fad. [Maybe just to get something out of it for themselves.] When it comes down to sacrifice they disappear with their words.

When so many people say, "I want to change the world" sometimes I wonder what they mean and where there feet will go, or how far. So I turn to God and ask for help. I ask Him to do what's good and to use me for His plan. Because men cannot save the world. Men cannot save men from death and the foolishness of society driven by materialism saying, "We'll end poverty." I say, No you won't." I say, "Check your heart and see the hole that cannot be filled by great deeds." Start getting to know great Love, a Love with arms that can hold the world, that can hold all people, that can end poverty and will one day.

Speak with Love and see what He says. See what he says, and do it. Stop following your own exciting or safe plan and seek out His. Your eyes cannot see as His. There's hope in Him, adventure in Him, safety in Him, love in Him. You would know that if you met Him. You would know that if only you knew what Jesus said, and you chose to believe him.

Everyone must face this truth; that you and your organization will end one day.
His won't. The one that Jesus established will not end. We do not have to be afraid or burdened.

His kingdom, government, society, community will last forever...into a beautiful eternity.

You don't know how often I hear talk like that living where I do. A great reminder, Joel, and very wise. Thanks buddy.
