journal #1

soooo!! i'm back from utah!! well, i say back.. but i'm actually here in new mexico for canon's jr high rodeo finals.. and it is B-E-A-U-TIFUL here, so i am sooo not complaining..

antyways.. utah was a success, i guess you could say.. james and i helped with the kindergarten through third grade class.. we had a blast with the kids and i think they had a ball themselves.. 

so. for journal #1. 

we were in bible class.. and the question asked was "how can we worship God?" (now keep in mind, these kids do not go to church and have no idea what the cliche sunday school answers are..) so this one kid raises his hand and says "Be nice to people.." well, of course that answer was shot down, because it didn't meet the typical worship answer.. but my gosh!! that is so right!! maybe if we didn't try to sound like we knew all the answers in the back of the book, and just got real for a second, we might find out what it truly looks like to worship God..

be nice to people.. duh.. i'm pretty sure God's favorite way of worship is to love other people.. am i wrong?? and i'm pretty sure one of the first definitions of love is niceness.. lets see.. 1 cor. 13 love is patient, love is kind.. yep.. thought so..

i know that reading the Word and praising him are ways of worship.. but i just wished being nice to people would become a typical answer.. maybe then we would see more of Christ's love here..
