After the Assembly weekend….

Well, as is to be expected, we alllllll got sick after the assembly. It was a GREAT assembly though. My favorite illustration was about the poor family in honduras who lived in a house with a dirt floor.

They were materialistic.

How can a family living in a home with a DIRT floor possibly be materialistic you might ask???
Well…..they were up to their ears in credit card debt which they had accumulated buying a color tv, stereo and expensive furniture (yes while still living with that dirt floor). They were all working tons of hours to pay for this debt. They were sacrificing spiritual things to work so many hours to pay for their debt. Now — can you imagine them running for their lives in the time of the end…..with their tv strapped to the husband’s back. The son dragging the stereo and the wife dragging along the furniture after them….talk about a millstone attached to your neck…shheeeshh….

Anyhoo….this assembly had sooo many points that I found to work on. It’s really been knocking around inside of my sniffling sneezing coughing head this week.
