Rolling Ridges
For over a year, I've been tossing around the term KWOL Kingdom Way of Living in my teaching and seeking it in my life.  For me, it means that every moment of every day becomes an act of ministry.  going to grocery store,  waving at a neighbor, saying hello to a stranger, giving a kid a ride to or from school,  and parenting....  that is a never ending cornucopia of opportunity.

The question began to arise as to where we can best serve.  God's voice calls us.  The issue of comfort and community is central.  Where and how can we best serve? Are we listening and acting in accordance with God's direction, or our own?

We can serve in the upper class suburbs, in the schools, and in our big SUVs in the city...
We can serve in our churches, as teachers, worshippers, musicians, and dancers.
We can serve as we teach lessons, songs, and poetry... teaching students to seize the day.
We can serve as we honor our fathers and mothers and devote our lives to family.
We can serve as missionaries to areas in need of our knowledge and experience.
We can serve 1x1 with each day, each person, each moment.

WE will serve in a less comfortable environment soon as we seek a new place, and a new calling and we will trust in the Lord.

Good friend, don’t forget all I’ve taught you;
    take to heart my commands.
They’ll help you live a long, long time,
    a long life lived full and well.
Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty.
    Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.
Earn a reputation for living well
    in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
    don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
    he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
    Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
    your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
    give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
    your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
    don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
    a father’s delight is behind all this.
                                                  --Proverbs 3:1-12 (Message)
