Here are some things that were said tonight during devotions: Even after making so much progress, sometimes we have to work backwards and take down what we’ve built before we can really accomplish what we’re working towards. Just as we have been sanding bookcases and rounding corners, God sands us and rounds our corners so that we can better love others and serve him. What we’re doing this week may not have immediate results. The seeds of hope that we are planting are going to take time to grow. A pair of $5 sunglasses that means nothing to us can mean the world to a little kid on a soccer field. God puts the perfect opportunities to serve into our lives, even when we’re afraid we won’t be able to make a difference.
