Notes to save

1. When you put your faith in action, God shows UP. (It helps if you yell it.)

Use when explaining Mark 2:1-12 about the paraplegic guy being lowered into the house through the ceiling. Sometimes we sit around waitin' on God to do something when in fact we gotta get up and do something. Highlight Jesus "saw their faith."

2. How many of us know it takes longer to grow an oak tree than a cucumber?

A hook to point out the importance of nurturing our children's spiritual growth. Also in fostering our own spiritual development in preparation for crisis. We may have an incredible experience at the moment we're saved but ya gotta git up the next morning and go to your regular old job. Don't miss the extraordinary in the ordinary days.
