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.

From A Place Called Simplicity

At the risk of stepping on toes, really sweet bloggy friends, most of what we do is a giant waste of time - almost all the "stuff" that fills our time. Our stuff distracts from loving God and our stuff distracts from loving others. Our stuff steals our time. Our stuff costs us valuable energy. If it isn't done with pleasing Him first and foremost and ministering to the less fortunate - then it is a time and energy sucker. And with no time and energy we have nothing left over to do what really counts, ya' know?
