LCA Eagles S.O.A.R.
Seek God, Offer Kindness, Accept Responsibility, Respect Others
“This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.” John 15:12
Our theme this year is LCA Eagles SOAR: Seek God, Offer Kindness, Accept Responsibility, Respect Others
What kind of God-seeker are we?
The most important thing we want our students to learn at LCA is to seek God and develop a personal relationship with him. As I was reading about ways to encourage our students to seek God, I came across a devotional about shell seekers that reminded me of what kind of God Seeker I want to be and pray for our students to be.
It's really interesting watching other shell seekers! There are:
Big shell-seekers- these are only watching for the "big scores" - those that can easily be seen and quickly grabbed.
Sifters - these scoop up nets filled with sand and shell pieces in hopes that there may be some whole shells they can pick out and keep.
Waders - these give it all they have! They'll wade out in the water getting their clothes wet in hopes of seeing that special illusive shell!
Micro-seekers - these stop, bend down, and really seek out the tiny treasures left along the wayside that others have missed.
What type of "God-seekers" are we? Do we seek God daily by spending time with him or do we wait and only seek him when we encounter big problems? Do we give him the leftover pieces of our day and just spend time with him when we can sift him in?
My hope and prayer for our students is that they become waders and micro-seekers - all in for God seeking him with all their heart and seeking HIS ways in the big and small things of life!
Jeremiah 29:13 - "You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart."
