Lazaroo – Thursday, July 19, 2012

Jul 19, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in Christ-centered humility:

“I built houses for myself…”
(Ecclesiastes 2:4)

Wealthy people can do that, Jesus.

They don’t just build one house for themselves.
They build houses.
Plural.

But no matter how much money I have
or don’t have

there’s a better way, isn’t there?

I can build houses

for You.

I might go on a mission trip
or give in an offering

and help build a native missionary’s house.

I might show up on a workday
or give in an offering

and help build a building
for my own church.

I might even go to the bank
take advantage of low interest rates
and build a house for You

that I live in.

Yes, it would keep the rain off my head
provide me with a place to sleep.

But its highest purpose…

would be to give me a base of operations
from which to launch mission after mission

for You.
