Erma ministered to the Mansion staff and children this morning.
I was not able to be there, but I know she did great!
And I know what she spoke about, because we share an Evernote account, and I eavesdropped on her notes. Here are some excerpts:
You are not on this planet primarily to make money, make grades, make a team, or make an impression. You are here to make a difference!
So, go Make A Difference! Go MAD!
“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes…So that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:11, 13-14
To “stand” is the opposite of going with the flow, or fitting in, or doing what everybody else is doing.
Taking a “stand” does not usually cost you friends, it reveals who your friends really are!
