Living is simple
Last night I had a dream i was asked to speak infront of my old college ministry group, Cornerstone. I have no idea why they chose me, but it was my present day self talking to what I would assume to be current students. I got up and was so energetic and excited to talk to everyone. I started out about how grateful I was to have been involved in Cornerstone. Then I had note cards passed out so everyone could write their majors on them and give them to me. I told them that if they didn’t know their majors, to make something up, or just put "life" on it, because we are all getting lessons in life, especially at college.
I went on to relate everyone’s majors to the theme of "K.I.S.S." or keeping it simple. I asked who went to Sunday school when they were kids and remembered the stories there. That serves as an example of how simple the Bible can be. How simple it could be to understand God’s love and intent for all of us. Then I started saying that as we grow older, we complicate our lives, but there is scripture to guide us even in our complicated lives. We again can understand God’s love for us in our complicated worlds. I was tying it all into God’s love being timeless since we saw it when we were young and see it as we get old. It’s omnipresent because in everything we do, in all of our majors in school, we can apply God’s love. I wrapped up by saying it’s just that simple. As humans, we try to complicate things. As our understanding grows, things become more complex.
I don’t know if there’s any practicality in that as a sermon or what, but I just thought it was neat to speak to everyone in my dream and in an impromptu manner.2,233 views
