- Leaning in to understand is the first step in learning to care.
- Indifference is a response to protect our hearts.
- We must learn to lean in to understand or we will look away and ignore.
- Missions is an expression of discipleship.
- Our hearts expand or shrink to the size of our greatest concern.
- We can’t wait to care. We must learn to care.
- Compassion begins at the point where we start to care.
- There’s always a person on the other side of the issue. We need to see the people behind the issues.
- Some of us allow our convenience, comfort and complacency to justify our inactivity.
- Everyday, all around us, we are confronted with brokenness. We see needs in our neighborhood, our city and our world.
- Comfort might distract us and provide relief for a moment, but it eventually gives way to boredom and apathy.
- Living a life of convenience proves to be a lonely venture.
- Convenience is tolerated self-centeredness.
- Rather than guarding our heart, indifference damages it.
- When our highest value is our own comfort and well-being, our soul becomes minuscule and unusable.
- Compassion is a quality that must be cultivated and only takes root when we take action.
- The significant issues facing our world require significant people. You are significant…so the world needs you.
- Maybe God only needs the little we have to make big things happen, if we would only lean in and start somewhere.
