I spent first 3 days in india not eating and sleeping most of the time I didn’t see much of India in those days but it did give me time to think.
Particularly about being sick and what’s the difference between a sick and healthy church. While I was well for first week I was able to learn so much and was open to the world around me. I could help others and others could help me. There was so much going on and I could just be a part of it eyes wide open.
However when I became sick I became dormant eyes shut closed off from the world around me. This did not change the fact that everything was still going on outside my front door. But as I was sick I could take no part I was of no help to others and just needed to be left alone.
I feel like we need to always be careful to remain a healthy church through prayer, following Jesus and the Bible so that our eyes can stay open to the world around us so the we can properly engage with our comunities.
