Pray & Dream

a Biblical thought...
The whole point of what we're urging is simply love—love uncontaminated by self-interest and counterfeit faith, a life open to God. (1 Tim 1:5)

a Book thought...
Comparison anxiety is when even good things happen to us, they pale in comparison with the shiny, wonderful things offered to us by the hyperreal world. This is because we always compare up not down. (p63 Sayers)

a Dave thought...
I was recently asked what are the two most important things you can pass onto others about ministry. After thinking for a few minutes I replied "to pray and to dream". I believe unless we are connected to God and are in line with His thoughts and concerns our ministry is often fruitless. Secondly I believe God wants us all to do what He is asking of us, not what someone else thinks is a good idea. So once we are connected to God we need to start to think and see a preferred future, as it is when we dream, then act in connection with God that the world truly begins to change.

Just a thought.
