Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
“Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor.” (I Corinthians 10:24 NASB). What a simple scripture! Short, to the point, and simple to memorize. In fact, the majority of us would quickly read through this scripture, and agree with it.
Why – because it’s a “no brainer”! So, why the need to even bring up this simple, short, to the point, no brainer, and simple to memorize scripture? Answer: It’s simple to memorize, but not easy to materialize.
It’s not so easy to seek the good of one’s neighbor when it’s inconvenient; when sacrifice is involved; when seeking the good of a neighbor means yielding one’s right. Hence, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to take this time to say THANK YOU to my wife (Lisa), my kids (Lucas, and Landon), my New Hope Las Vegas family (Ohana), and Jesus! It continues to be a privileged joy to be your neighbor! You make the simply look so easy to materialize!
CONGRATULATIONS to the families of the 11 CHILDREN we dedicated last week! The best place to put your most treasured is in the hands of God, and our children are one of our most treasured hope!
