Donald Miller's thoughts

In my talk last Sunday, I referenced Donald Miller's thoughts on voting Democrat. Although I don't agree with everything he says (especially with his endorsing of a candidate), I found his approach to be interesting. Check it out:

  1. I like Miller's challenges of going beyond the ideal, getting beyond "winning". Since I "am being saved" and will never "win" until Jesus takes me home, He (both Jesus and Miller) makes me think about "with whom will I go out of my way to have a conversation, to build a relationship" even when they don't seek me out? Who at W&L wants to have an honest conversation about eternal things but belongs to the "wrong" group or appears to be in opposition to the Gospel? I need to be out on the fringes of our "society". After all, "while we were still weak, ...while we were still sinners, ...while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son". God came looking for me when I didn't want to be found.

  2. In the process of proving our rightness, we often forget to be loving.

    Great insight, Scott.
