You Might Not Finish this Blog Post

img_0047After carrying the book around for the past 6 months and hearing again and again that I need to read it, I finally started Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I will blog more on my thoughts later as there are some great applications to adoption and orphan care already.

I read Chapter 2 last night before bed. The title is “you might not finish this chapter”. I was sobered and have not been able to get it out of my mind all morning.

He writes:

You could die before you finish reading this chapter. I could die while you’re reading it. Today. At any moment.

But it’s easy to this about today as just another day. An average day where you go about life concerned with your to-do list, preoccupied by appointments, focused on family, thinking about your desires and needs.

On the average day, we live caught up in ourselves. On the average day, we don’t consider God very much. On the average day, we forget our life truly is a vapor.

In light of this reality how will I live my life differently today? How will you?

  1. Love that book! Chan’s church is now promoting foster care. They had so much response that the county is now holding their foster care classes at their church.

  2. I feel like we had this conversation about 3 months ago. I was sitting at the fireplace, and you were in the brown chair by the window…..do you remember that? 🙂 Praying!!!
