End of School Year Picnic – Landa Park

 

Our kindergarten through 7th grade students enjoyed an end of the school year picnic at Landa Park in New Braunfels today.  Thanks to Mrs. Flynn, who spearheaded the operation from start to finish and to each parent who helped to make this field trip an enjoyable success.  Special appreciation goes out to the Cervenka’s and the Palmer family for taking care of food and transportation needs. The ribs were killer!

Love Is A Verb

cross-equals-love

It’s never more obvious than during Valentine’s Day that, at least romantically, the idea of love has been hijacked by our culture and its meaning so convoluted that the world’s “love” is something out of our control—a trance-like state that befalls anyone in the path of Cupid’s arrow; hapless victims seized by a force beyond themselves and unable to do anything about this purely emotional condition (i.e., “I’ve fallen in love; We fell out of love, etc.”).

Thankfully, the Bible is clear that love isn’t something that happens to you, it’s what God commands of us: to love Him, our spouse, our neighbor, even our enemy. Love is a commitment to be made. A decision. An act of the will.

That commitment of course leads us to action, and may be accompanied by emotion as we demonstrate our genuine concern for the well being of others in tangible, meaningful ways. But the point is love is a commandment to be obeyed, regardless of our feelings or whether we think someone deserves it. Our chief example is Romans 5:8: But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Ultimately however, whether you’re buying your wife flowers, providing a meal for someone in need, or simply going out of your way to be kind and gracious to the waitress who can’t get your order right, it is imperative for us to remember that it’s all about God’s glory.

In 7th grade English class, my students are reading Anne of Green Gables. This line from the classic novel leaped off the page at me one day as we read it in class:

“[Anne] knew and cared nothing about God’s love, since she had never had it translated to her through the medium of human love.”

Ultimately, this love we show others needs to direct people to the God who first loved us—making Him known to those who need Him as we strive to pursue His glory above all.
