“Stop asking God to bless what you’re doing. Get involved in what God is doing — because it’s already blessed.” -Bono
Tonight, we watched the movie Lord, Save Us From Your Followers. I had watched it a few months ago when my sister recommended it. It is an interesting movie– honest yet hopeful. I would absolutely recommend it… it’s available on Netflix Instant Queue.
The narrator uses a few positive examples of Christians– Bono, Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II. Another Bono quote which I love…
“Look, whatever thoughts you have about God, who He is or if He exists, most will agree that if there is a God, He has a special place for the poor. In fact, the poor are where God lives… But the one thing we can all agree, all faiths and ideologies, is that God is with the vulnerable and poor.
God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house… God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives… God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war… God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them.“
