Where is God's purpose when we watch sports or enjoy vacation? There is no need to connect vacation with purpose; trusting in God, we can dare to take time and space to relax, to rest, to enjoy.

Whenever Jesus – then or now – sees others, he looks upon them with a spirit of compassion. The only difference is that now he depends on you and me to be his eyes, his hands and feet, to reflect his presence, and to show his sheep a better way of life and where the Shepherd is. To do so, we’ve got to be willing to put up with the inconveniences. Even more, we have to be passionate about being compassionate. After all, it goes with the fame.
