I remember growing up in a house with a tin roof on it and every time we had a hard rain with wind the roof would leak. We would have to move things around in the house and put buckets under the places the water dripped. I remember the day we went to the hardware store and purchased what we needed to put on the tin roof to prevent it from leaking. The next time it rained we could enjoy sitting in a house that did not leak. There are so many things in this world that need fixing. There are so many things the Church and God’s children could do to make a difference. We have to stop putting buckets under a leaking roof and put forth the effort it takes to make a difference. (Ecclessiastes 10:18 Through laziness, the rafters sag; because of idle hands the house leaks.) Do you truly believe that love can change the world? The Bible is filled with instructions for us to be active. Wishing for something does not produce the results we desire, but we must aggressively do what needs to be done to achieve them. We will never find a successful man who spent his life wishing for success and attained it. The same principle applies to loving God, loving your­self, and loving others. If we want to love people as Jesus instructed, we will have to do so on purpose. It will not happen by accident. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
