Not a Fan

Awhile ago I wrote a post about the H20 Bible study done by City on a Hill Productions. I had hoped to blog more about the videos but I just never did. Now we are watching the series by the same pastor called Not a Fan. I am really getting a lot out of this set of videos and they really make you think. This past week was about how materialistic we can be and how we sometimes just don't want God to have complete control...only a little control so that nothing in our own lives has to change.

I was talking to a friend today about how our cultures main idea with life is to do well, have a good job, make a lot of money, have a nice house, and have nice THINGS. It's incredible to think about people who's entire life revolve around this main idea. Everyone wants to do well because it's almost expected of us, and if we don't we are "looked down upon" in society.

It doesn't have to do with the money you make or what type of job you do. It's the purpose behind what you are doing. Are you working just to please yourself and make others happy? Do we live to please God and show others through our example?

This is not an easy thing to do, showing others God through example can be really difficult because there are days when I just really don't want to have patience or say the best things to others.

Just some food for thought that stopped me in my footsteps at work today, am I honoring God with what I am saying and doing at work? The next question is more difficult. If I'm not, what can I do to change?

By the way, if interested in Not a Fan check out the website over here.
