I didn't deem us healthy enough to be in close quarters with children and the elderly, so we stayed home from church. I listened to The Message most of the day and when I washed dishes after the boys went to bed, I listened to several chapters in Matthew (via BibleGateway.com).

One thing that stood out for me: In the parable of the sower, I noticed that the seed in good soil produced a crop "a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown." Counting down, not up! It made me think that we're not all Billy Graham; some of us may not lead many souls to Christ, but we're still in good soil. We're still counted as fruitful. Maybe our mission field is far away, maybe it's close to home. And maybe our fruit isn't the number of converts to Christianity, but the support we give to our spiritual brothers and sisters, our children seeking God's will because we raised them that way, etc.

Our sermon was about being closer to God.

We read and studied the following verses:

  • Isaiah 55:10-12
  • James 4:8 Come near to God and He will come near to you.
  • Jeremiah 29:13-14
  • Psalm 19: 1-6
  • Isaiah 40:21-26
  • Psalm 8:1-4
  • Rev. 21:3

How close are you to God today?
