Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Lara's Servant Heart

So, I was at work and putting out all of the beds and getting ready for lunch. It's a tight schedule, one that easily can delay lunch, and then we have 20 hungry, tired, GRUMPY todlers on our hands.

We also had Hey-De-Ho (a visiting music program).

And Lara wanted to stay inside to "help".

The thing is, Lara loves Hey-De-Ho. She's a fanatic. She'll go around singing the songs all day. But she wouldn't go out onto the verranda to join in. Because she wanted to help.

Lara has the heart of a servant. It's amazing how many two-year-olds do. There's nothing they like ore than helping. And we like to send them away, and not let them, when really, these children are our spiritul betters in many ways, because they want to help.

"And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3)
