“The essence of the world’s standard is that it sets self in the centre; the essence of the Christian standard is that it sets Christ and others in the centre.”
From my morning readings in “The Letters to the Galatians and Ephesians”, Daily Study Bible Series, by William Barclay.
The focus is on service. Not just for people we know and love, but for all of God’s creation. Which doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t start at home, as it were. But many of my NeedlePrayer projects are for people I have never met, and I never meet them. But I love them because God does.
