So my youth group is having a Rec Night this saturday, right. Well, I had this brilliant idea! Use social networking sites to invite people to it! So, like any facebook-addicted person, I made an event on facebook and invited everyone that was in the age range that was in my friends list.
You would not believe how hard it was for me to click every single person in my friends list. So many times I kept thinking “Oh I’m going to offend this person” or “my christian friends wouldn’t like that person” or “I’m not sure if I want them to see that I’m a religious fanatic”… well, I’m happy to say that even though I was thinking those things, I clicked on their names anyway. Anyway, last night I was praying for the event and I was just in awe cuz I had just invited 50 people to it. So I prayed and prayed that everyone would come and everyone would be receptive and that it would all just go over well. Well, I have one of my friends already saying yes, they will go. so I guess the facebook endeavor was a success!
I love it how going to any extent is worth one person coming. ya know? That’s awesome! I know that if someone went to this great extent to get me to hang out with them and all this stuff and when I finally said yes, they had a gigantic party and felt like their life was finally complete…. I’d be totally stoked. Well, here’s the thing. God did that for us. He went to great extents to get us to hang out with him. And whenever someone accepts his invitation and comes to the party, his day is made. His “life” is made, so to speak.
Just my thought for the day. God cares. I care. I can’t wait or people to realize just how big the caring is and how far it reaches out.
