“GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME, EMILY!” I remember my college coach shouting this to me on several occasions. It was usually when I had taken the other team too lightly and helped get our team into a tighter game than we should be. Honestly, when I read the parable of the Good Samaritan, I hear God saying the same thing. I sometimes take my journey of faith and responsibility as a follower of Christ too lightly. I often find myself in situations that are tighter than they should be. I am often not ALL IN with my faith and struggle to have my head in the game.
During this special season we call Generosity, we look at how God calls us to be ALL IN with our head, heart, and hands. God has been ALL IN for us and so we should respond with being ALL IN with our lives. I am so thankful that we are gathering together today as a family of faith to dive into the scripture, sing and pray together.
