WALK the TALK Gift Book

    Everyone….. take off your shoes…. seriously… take off your shoes…. set them in front of you…. forming a circle… lets all walk around three paces to our right… who’s shoes are you in front of? Lets walk in THEIR shoes for a few mins…. the persons shoes you are standing in front of…. you and that person…. step out of the circle … that person needs to tell you one thing they are privately struggling with right now, one thing they need prayer for …. one at a time… around the circle…. two people leave the circle…. as you re-join the circle…. how can we NOT look at everyone differently? Our complaining seems so insignificant and trivial… and in the world… we need to be reminded to not fall victim to be IN THE WORLD… because we are here… to work together… to rely on each other… to life each other up… not to bring each other down. Eccl 4:9-10…. Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
    But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! So if we take it a step farther, and say 3 are better and 2, or 5 are better…. or 10 are better than 5… we can multiply and make a difference and stay strong.
