I really like the way the Friday group is exploring serving:
“¢ serving an individual,
“¢ serving our local community,
“¢ serving our world.
A friend of mine is going nuts on the 5-hour roundtrip drive he does for his work. He desperately needs an iPod, but his resources are tight. I told him I had an old one with a poor battery but it works fine in the car with a 9V-to-Firewire adapter.
I was praying for him last night in the hot tub (my favorite place to pray), and praying about whether I should get a new iPod and give him my old one, when an idea hit me: Maybe I am not the one to meet his need. Maybe if I step in, I will be depriving someone else of the joy and blessing of serving somebody in Jesus’ name.
So: Do you have an extra iPod lying around that you could donate? Or do you have an old one you’d like to upgrade? I will hook you up with a new one at a good discount. It’s the Jesus way.
