Our job as mothers and fathers, artists and writers, pastors and teachers and worship leaders is to help others see reality—to behold the beauty of God. We’re tour guides. We drive people out to the Grand Canyon of God and stare breathless over the abyss and say Will you look at that? And our wonder inspires their wonder.

  • How do we have an impact with what we are saying?
  • It starts with what we are seeing. 

“Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.” (Psa. 119:18 NIV11)

  • Wonder inspires wonder
  • Start by being ‘wondered’
  • Then we can lead others to that wonder.

Wouldn’t you like to be a wonderful speaker? You would? So would your listeners! How do you propose to grow in your ability to be ‘wondered’ by God’s Word? Please met me know.
