What would you do for twenty dollars? Would you french kiss a dog? How about this, would you take your mom to the prom? …You know, we’d do all kinds of crazy things for twenty bucks, but what would you do for a penny? Would you take your mom to the prom now? French kiss that dog? See the crazy thing is we treat people the very same way. Some are worth our time and some we pass just right by like they’re worthless. Last week, I conducted Roger Dawsons’ funeral. Y’know, some of you may not know this, but Roger into our youth group the Sunday before. You know it’s easy to blame, but last week Roger took a look at his life and he said, “I am not worth it.” So whatever he was hoping to find here, he obviously didn’t find it. Do we get this? Because if we don’t, the consequences are huge.

 Didn’t any of you hear what he just said? My girlfriend came here today, and she left because she felt judged. And no one even noticed. Roger walked into school and started shooting. I knew him. He wasn’t crazy. And did anyone ever stop and ask why? I mean how did it get to the point where his only option was to shoot himself? There are people killing themselves and you’re chugging soda through a sock. I mean, what’s the point of all this if you’re not going to let it change you?

Life is a journey,not so much to a destination,but to a transformation. Looking back doesn’t it sometimes feel like our richest times come in the midst of our hardest? But God made us to live in community, to laugh and cry. To hurt and celebrate with each other, no matter what we’re going through. And transformation is tough, and we don’t always end up where we think we will. But we have to remember, that even when we struggle to believe in Him, He always believes in us. He fills our lives with purpose and passion, if we just let Him.
