Reaching out in friendship: Have fun

All-children-are-artists

Have a good time.

Sometimes we might wonder if we have replaced being a vibrant witness of Jesus with cheap, lifeless imitations.  We might be tempted to hang pretty paintings with verses on them hung in strategic locations around the house so everyone will “know.”

This is not bad.  What they likely say to the new neighbour is that you’re religious.

What if your house were known on your street as a party house?  The one thing we do have to be careful of is not having alcohol and pork around if there are conservative Muslims.  Other than that the sky is the limit.

If you do not know how to party, get help from someone who does.  But you also must know and understand needful boundaries and cultural norms so you don’t offend more people than you win.

 

 

 

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
