Whose Shoulder Are You Standing On

Whose Shoulders Are You Standing On and Who Is Standing On Your Shoulders? Lesson Objective:  To understand that we must take the time to make a difference in the lives of others because someone took the time to make a difference in our lives. Scripture:  Matthew 7:16 ; Matthew 20:28; Introduction: Please Listen or read this commencement speech given by Denzel Washington at Dilliard University as an introduction to the lesson. Denzel Washinton’s  video speech   Denzel Washington’s speech text  : This speech has several resounding themes for me:. Put God First in all that we do Never be afraid to think ouside the box because God has no boundaries Often times we really do not believe and trust and act accordingly Never forget to pray and thank God Remember to make a difference in the lives of others Let’s examine each of these themes Video Pt 1   God is First in everything we do Mark 12:30  Love the Lord 1 Corinthians 10:31 what ever we do do it to the glory of God Matthew 6:33 Seek God first Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. God has no boundaries Ephesians 3:20 God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Luke 1: 37 Nothing is impossible Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible Truly trust in God for what you desire Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope Do not be like the Children of Israel and forget what God has promised and what he has done Video Part 2   Never forget to Pray and thank God       Pray without ceasing – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray last thing at night and first thing in the morning Video Part 3   Making a difference in the lives of others                 1.We were put on earth to serve We are to use our gifts to make a difference We are where we are because of others Who will be able to say that about you one day?
