I’m being pretty selfish here…

I’m working on a writing project for ChristNow.com. It’s a series of┬ádevotions for children on Jesus. We’ll be launching a new ministry called Christ Kids to help raise kids in the fullness of Christ.

Anyway, I’m loving the simplicity of approaching Jesus that this project is forcing me to take. I’m taking one verse at a time, picking it apart, culling it for signs of Jesus. I feel like I’m panning for gold.

Colette prayed this morning, “Father, reveal what you want the kids to know about Jesus.”

Although the audience of this work will be children, I’m taking so much in, and drawing close to the King. I’m being pretty selfish here – eating what was meant for the kids and feasting on it myself.

Like eating half the cake in private, then telling them there was only ever half a cake.

But I know there’ll be enough of Jesus to go around when I’m done with him. He is life eternal.

  2. Today in prayer the Lord asked if we want a bite or perhaps even a whole sandwich but He said why not ask for a feast. Because a feast is not a feast without a guests to share. I pray as you feast you know that it’s a banquet you are inviting many guests to. And like a kids celebration the beauty is the parents who come along expecting nothing
