Outflow 1.4

Great reading today!

Although God created us to “love God and to use things,” the Thief convinces us to reverse that order. We start “loving things” and “using God or people” as a means to get what we want. In doing this, we not only destroy the flow of good things God intends for us, we open the door to all sorts of evil.

That’s what I meant in my Outflow 1.1 post!

I loved this quote to, on page 40 in a section called “A Life that Sucks”:

When you dance to the Thief’s tune, your life begins to suck in instead of flow out.

I think we’ve all been there (or are there now!). But I’m glad to be part of a church that’s committed on working on an “outward” focus!
