Well it has been some time since I have blogged. And over this non-blogging time, our family grew just one more with the birth of Avery Grace on September 1. And my sweet Parker became a Christian as well. Both are big deals in our family. We celebrate birthdays and spiritual birthdays in much the same fashion.
We need to remember that it is not God who is lucky to have you and me in His service; we are the ones who are privileged to have a role, large or small, in advancing His kingdom. There is a distinct difference between those who volunteer out of obligation and those who feel called by God to serve. It’s not that volunteering is bad; it’s just that there is a deeper level of commitment, joy, and reward with those who know their calling is from God.
