WHAT WE DO

Pastor Steve Lummer

Part 5

RETRIEVING YOUR CUTTING EDGE

The duller the ax the harder the work;  Use your head: The more brains, the less muscle. Ecclesiastes 10:10 (message)

Three Ways To Lose Something

1. Intentional lost ness

2. Accidental lost ness

3. Gradual Lost ness

The Bible is written to show use how to retrieve things that are lost.

The company of the prophets said to Elisha, “Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. 2 Let us go to the Jordan, where each of us can get a pole; and let us build a place there for us to live.” 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axhead fell into the water. “Oh, my lord,” he cried out, “it was borrowed!”  6 The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. 7 “Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it. – 2 Kings 6:1-7 (niv)
