There are some many things happening at every level that has captivated our focus. Locally: students, parents, teachers, and others are preparing for the start to another school year. Nationally: all eyes were on Rick Warren and his recent Saddleback Civil Forum where the first real exposure of the two presidential candidates was presented. Internationally: the 2008 Olympics in Beijing have captured most of all our attentions. But I have to ask, “What is God’s focus?” Is it really school starting, a presidential election, or an athletic competition? “Yes and No.” As we are being reminded here at Mobberly, what matters most to God is how His children will be using another school year to influence their friends for Christ, how Christians will use their God-given freedom’s to pray for their leaders and participate in the political process, and how believers are capitalizing on an international stage to expand God’s kingdom for eternity’s sake and God’s glory. There’s is nothing more important to God at any given moment than the salvation of all living people on earth. With the next semester of EveryDay FAITH beginning this week, the family of Mobberly is being reminded to “always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15).
