Tidying as we Go

We’ve found a new phrase for a value that we want to pursue as CLC.  We were on Crow Hill and while tidying up our own rubbish we decided to collect some other rubbish, thus leaving the area cleaner than when we first arrived.

God cares so much for His dearly beloved creation–people and world too.   Making our patch better for the next person who comes along symbolizes how we all share the hills, the parks, our world.  Cleaning someone else’s litter reminds us that we give freely and God commissioned us to be a blessing and not being distracted by things like who made the mess in the first place.  We love, like He loves us, generously and with no strings attached!

This is a good value to cultivate.  There are many ways we can do this in our lives.  Not just litter.  We can even contribute some encouraging words to a conversation, give someone a smile who comes to us frowning.

We are copying our loving Papa God when we bring His redemption into our wold.  Who knows the big impact we are having.

This is why, on Sunday at our BBQ on Jesus Green, we brought some litter pickers and all ages enjoyed leaving the area cleaner than it was when we first arrived!
