Da Lifne Mi Atah Omed

-Does God really care about you?
-About me?
-About the little things that make up our ordinary lives?
I would love to hear your answers to those questions above. From a Biblical perspective I would answer that God is personally interested in His creations existence. The words that fill the title of my blog may seem weird because they are Hebrew.
Da Lifne Mi Atah Omed means "KNOW BEFORE WHOM YOU STAND"
You can find those words inscribed in some Synagogues above the Torah scroll cabinet. Those words are a reminder that we live our lives everyday in the presence of God.
Did you ever wonder why the Disciples lived such extra-ordinary lives? Just flip through the book of Acts and be amazed that at every turn the disciples were attempting something great for God. Could it be that today we lost the idea of living every moment in God's presence? Could it be that we confuse going to Church for 1 hour on 1 day of the week as our "God Time" instead of every single second of every single day?
Were did this false idea come from?
I think it started when we got a little too comfy with our Christianity...
-Most come to church and want the service to be exactly 1 hour.
-Some of us sit in air conditioned sanctuaries.
-Others sit on padded pews.
Maybe things have become a little too easy in America and the Christian church now reflects that. But when was the Church ever supposed to be a reflection of anything other than its Head, Jesus?
Sadly, for some, Jesus is just another slice of our lives that we conveniently eat on Sunday mornings from 11 o'clock to noon.
--But it was never meant to be that way.
"Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do- do all for the glory of God." (I Cor. 10:31)
In other words...Da Lifne Mi Atah Omed
