Leviticus 25; Psalm 25 and 26; Acts 22

More weirdoes….choosing to drive junky cars ...living generous lives ....taking care of others…I mean come on that's just 3 people I know who are weird. And the Dave Ramsey quote rings in my ears…
”Broke is normal, BE weird.”
Leviticus 25: 4 But in the seventh year the land is to have a sabbath of rest, a sabbath to the LORD. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. 6 Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you—for yourself, your manservant and maidservant, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you, 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten.
Weird…but…but we just stepped away from Small Group leadership for a year, participated but didn’t facilitate and now we are drawn back…..ok...but still weird.

Lev. 25: 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God….but if I don’t get mine, I mean what if they take advantage of me..just too weird.

Psalm 25: 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
Psalm 26: 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;(nope that’s too scary….right??) 3 for your love is ever before me, (before me would imply my following) and I walk continually in your truth.

And then the whole of Saul to Paul…and Ananias that whole story from Acts 9…I mean come on….This is all just weird…
Please God I want to not be afraid of BEING weird.

Can you imagine people in our day taking a whole year off?

But we have our careers to think about ... we need a plan ... a system ...
