It's not about us

Daily reading: 2 Samuel 7:1-17
Saturday October 29, 2016

Focus passage: And the LORD declares to you that the LORD will make a dynasty for you. 2 Samuel 7:11b.

In this about face, God reminds David, that this isn’t about what he can do.  It is about what God can do through him.  We all are humbled with this reminder.  What we are about is tuning into God’s dream and vision.  It’s not about us.

God doesn’t need David to build God a house.  God doesn’t need David to be the architect, because ultimately we need God to be the architect of the kingdom.  We need God to be the architect of our community.

Prayer: God, help me to put you first in my thoughts and in my actions.  May I be an instrument for you today.  Amen.
