How do you see the world?

Posted: March 6, 2009 in Ministry

I just received an email from Granger Community Church. It got me thinking, and thought that I would pass this information on to you.

Here is the big question…

How do you see the world?

The great danger is that we will fall into the trap that the whole world is like the street we live on. Of course, it is not. How do you see the world? Six billion people are on the planet. If we reduce that population to 100 people, proportionately:

• 57 of those people come from Asia
• 21 from Europe
• 14 from North and South America
• 8 from Africa
• 49 would be women
• 51 would be men
• 68 would still not be able to read and write
• 6 of those people would own 50% of the world’s wealth and all of those would be U.S. citizens
• 1 of those people would have just been born
• 1 of those people is about to die
• Only 1 of those people have been to college

Will you take the opportunity this year to have eyes that see and ears that hear what is happening in your own community?

You know it, just as I know it, that we don’t have to travel across the world to break out of “our own little reality!” Take some time and think through where in your community that you can make an impact for the sake of Christ!

Well, do you see the world differently now?

I pray that you do!
