I love the show Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I think epitomizes the heart and soul of America and what we are capable of as a country.
I have enjoyed watching families who are in desperate situations have their lives completely changed because of the service of an army of volunteers and the over the top generosity of the show itself.
As I watch the show each Sunday night, it reminds me of so many things.
It reminds me of
- the “over the top” grace and goodness of God that is exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or think.
- how we can all take the little we have, some more than others, put it all together in a common cause and see incredible results.
- the value of missions work where our lives our changed even as God changes the lives of the people through us.
- heaven; where all that will matter while on this Earth is whether we truly loved God and loved people.
Finally it reminds me that it’s not really work when you love what you’re doing.
