Desiring Life

Where have you been? Where are you going? And why?

Saturday Citation: Robert D. Lupton

The fundamental building blocks of the Kingdom are relationships. Not programs, systems, or productivity. But inconvenient, time-consuming, intrusive relationships. The Kingdom is built on personal involvements that disrupt schedules and drain energy. When I enter into redemptive relationships with others, I lose much of my ‘capacity to produce desired results with a minimum expenditure of energy, time, money, or materials.” In short, relationships sabotage my efficiency. A part of me dies. Is this perhaps what our Lord meant when He said we must lay down our lives for each other?
