This morning, the kids had on neatly pressed cloths. I painted all the girls nails – sparkly glitter included. The boys gelled their hair and cut their dirty fingernails back.
Then we went to church.
And the message included clips from a movie about a family who survived a Tsunami. Even though the family was ultimately united, it was heart wrenching to watch the desperation as they searched through the devastation for one another.
It certainly put fingernail polish and hair gel into perspective. And it really made me question my sense of urgency – the urgency that God has called in us to search for the lost. To share His love.
Quite convicting. My life is so self centered. I live mostly within the bounds of my family. Largely oblivious to the desperation in this fallen world.
But now, the question remains, how can I move my conviction to action?
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke 19:10
