Gmail Anyone?

I’ve got several Gmail Invites available. If you’d like one, please post your e-mail in the comments section and I’ll send you an invitation.

I was blessed to receive an invitation in the same manner, and so I wanted to return the favor.

BTW, I tried the friends and family way and the most common response was:
Oh, never mind.


I am Nothing

If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 1 Cor 13:2

I’m a task-oriented person, so for me, its all about the job. Let’s get the job done, and people are second priority.

But what I’m realizing is that I’ve got it backwards in God’s economy. It really doesn’t matter (as much) about the job getting done, but the motives of my heart while I’m doing the job. I can have all the right talents and skills, but if my heart is filled with self-seeking pride, there is no eternal value or significance to what I’m doing. Basically, a waste of time.

I get frustrated with people because I focus on the job. They get in my way and slow me down when I’m trying to get done. People make things more complicated. They complain when you don’t do the job in the way that they want. Their standards and expectations don’t match up with mine. Oh, if they only thought the way I did! Oh if they could only be more like me! Me! Me! Me!

[Love] does not seek its own. 1 Cor 13:5

I’m also realizing that I don’t have it in me to love people. Nope, it’s just not there. My natural tendency is that I’d rather focus on the job. It’s easier that way. I need Jesus to come in and take my stony, selfish heart and replace it with a heart of love. His love.

Father God, I need you! I need Your love in my life because I don’t have it in me. Please fill me with Your love. Please help me to see people as You see them.
