Yesterday I dropped one of my favorite classes. I dropped my Entrepreneurial Strategy course. It felt good to take it off of my plate. Not because it’s too much work for me, but because it’s too much extra work.
I don’t exist in this place to only go to school. School is definitely the largest part of my life right now, but my heart isn’t there. I hate school, not because it’s hard, but because I don’t feel called to a job other than ministry. My heart is in serving other people.
This week I had a lady call and ask if I could help her kids get groceries, and take them to the food pantry for other food. I was also called and asked if I could help another guy replace the heater in his trailer (as in trailer park trailer) before winter comes.
I had to tell these people I couldn’t help until the weekend, or even respond until next week. This breaks my heart. I don’t want to go to school to get a piece of paper that says I know something. I just want to help people. I want to show people a kind of love that they’ve never experienced from someone claiming the name of Jesus. So many people have been burnt by “the church” and by “christians”. I hate it.
I want to live out Luke 10:27 in a very tangible way. This is why I dropped a class though. So I can free up more of my time so I can help people when I can. I also need to have more time to focus on and pray for the students of The HOUSE.
