Message Series: be real
Message: What Really Matters
Have you ever spent time looking into what people think really matters? I guess having an "ice day" gave me a little more time to do some research into what others have said about "what really matters". And what I discovered is that even though there are some differences of opinion, there are a few commonalities that are found on almost every list.
But before we get to their lists, let me ask you: what are 5 things that really matter in life? Go ahead. Take your time and make your lists. And in the meantime, I will hum the Jeopardy theme song.
So now that you have finished your list, here are a few of the answers that were in common on most lists: health, relationships, happiness and purpose were found on almost every list. Do you notice what is missing? What is missing is anything that could be classified as "materialism".
This week, as we continue in our new series on be real, we are going to look at some challenging words from Paul that call us to live into "What Really Matters". So join us this Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 to live into the challenge.
Also this Sunday, Tina Cummings from Freedom Place will be speaking at both of our morning services. Freedom Place is a "Christ-centered care and recovery center for underage female victims of domestic child sex trafficking." Tina will speak into their ministry and will be available following the services to speak with those who would like to volunteer and get involved with their recovery program.
See you Sunday as we seek to live into "what really matters"!
