This weekend we had the privilege to visit a church that helps us in many ways. One of the many things they do is to provide food so we can feed the hungry people and children in our church. They have generous hearts and open hands to the needy.
I realized then that it depends where the church is looking!
A window helps you to look outside; to see further than just your own need. And when you look outside, you will definitely see the need. You will realize that looking into the mirror is good, but looking through the window will expand your vision.
The Bible is very clear about the importance of a vision:
18Where there is no vision, the people perish…
A church only looking at the mirror will have no vision; this will not only have an influence on the spiritual health of a church, but they will actually grow backwards!
Make sure that you are part of a church that looks through the window and not only at the mirror!
(Thanks to the congregation of Kruik – may you keep on looking through the window!)
