Some of my thoughts and musings on faith, life and ministry. All that is posted here are of my own opinions and do not necessarily represent any organisation, church or ministry that I am a part of/affiliated with. 

The Way Of The World vs The Way of The Kingdom

This is the way of the world: we look at what others have that we don't, and are either filled with longing which leads to despair or a constant striving to get what we so desperately covet.. Or we develop a condescension based on a assurance that we are somehow better than those who lack the privileges we have.

This is the way of the kingdom: we look at what we have that others don't, and are filled with compassion which compels us to be the a vessel in which God can channel His blessing through us. We look to contribute to the needs of others. We understand that whatever that we have is a blessing and not a privilege, and we are simply stewards.

People of the world will always ask: "How can I be blessed? More of me me me me me."

People of the kingdom on the other hand: "How can I be a blessing? Less of me me me me and more of YOU."

The only time we ought to look down at someone is right before we reach to pick them up.
