Ask what you can do for God....

john f. kennedy said in his inaugural address in 1961, "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” perhaps that suggestion has never been as needed as it is now~we are not the America of 10-years ago.

Neil Armstrong, in 1969, stepped onto the surface of the moon, a feat previously never performed. he said, “one small step for man; one giant step for mankind”. and it was! “man’ (which includes “woman”) is exceptionally intelligent and capable. where did man obtain such immeasurable intelligence? from the Creator of the universe~the One who made each of the bodies’ cells and intricately wove them together before we were even in the womb (“for You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb"…Ps. 139:13). this is the One who knows the very number of hairs on each of our heads right now (Matt. 10:30)~and furthermore, He cares! this is the same Creator who sees when even one sparrow falls to the ground (Matt. 10:29). man is smart, yet man has limits; our God is limitless. so for me the question is, “ask not what your God can do for you; ask what you can do for your God!” He doesn’t want our ability; He wants our availability! what will you do with God today? tomorrow? next week? over the long haul! what we do for Him never goes unnoticed~ and the promise for us is ("Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with me, to render to every man according to what he has done". ~Rev. 22:12). agree or disagree? i’d love to hear your thoughts…..
