  • COMING UP ON LIFE TODAY,
  • 00:00:06.290 --> 00:00:08.260
  • ROBERT MORRIS HELPS US UNDERSTAND WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:10.260
  • TO TAKE THE DAY OFF.
  • 00:00:10.290 --> 00:00:12.260
  • Robert: THAT'S ACTUALLY THE WRONG QUESTION.
  • 00:00:12.290 --> 00:00:14.260
  • IT'S NOT WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:00:14.290 --> 00:00:16.260
  • IT'S WHAT DO I NOT DO?
  • 00:00:16.290 --> 00:00:18.260
  • AND WHAT I DON'T DO
  • 00:00:18.290 --> 00:00:20.260
  • IS WHATEVER I DO FOR WORK.
  • 00:00:20.290 --> 00:00:23.040
  • SO I MIGHT WORK AROUND THE HOUSE,
  • 00:00:23.070 --> 00:00:25.040
  • MIGHT GO TO THE LAKE, MIGHT SIT AROUND AND DO NOTHING --
  • 00:00:25.070 --> 00:00:28.140
  • ALL THAT IS FINE.
  • 00:00:28.170 --> 00:00:30.140
  • MIGHT STARE AT DEBBIE ALL DAY -- THAT'S GREAT TOO.
  • 00:00:30.170 --> 00:00:32.140
  • RECEIVING GOD'S GIFT OF REST -- NEXT!
  • 00:00:32.170 --> 00:00:36.030
  • 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:51.260
  • Betty: WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY !

  • WITH US TODAY.
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:07.140
  • James: ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:08.230
  • HE'S WRITTEN A NEW BOOK,
  • 00:01:10.010 --> 00:01:11.040
  • TAKE THE DAY OFF .
  • 00:01:11.040 --> 00:01:13.030
  • IT IS RECEIVING A GIFT
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:15.100
  • FROM GOD THAT'S CALLED "REST."
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:17.270
  • AND EVEN GOD RESTED.
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:19.220
  • ROBERT PROBABLY NEEDS
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:20.270
  • TO PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:21.290
  • BETTY HAS ALREADY TOLD HIM
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:22.290
  • HE NEEDS TO PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:24.000
  • SO I'LL CONFESS AND
  • 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:25.040
  • WE'LL LET ROBERT PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:26.090
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:27.140
  • ROBERT MORRIS

  • BACK TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:29.240
  • [Cheers & applause]
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:30.290
  • ROBERT, I'M GOING
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:32.120
  • TO LET YOU START ON ME
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:34.270
  • AND THEN I WANT YOU
  • 00:01:34.270 --> 00:01:36.050
  • TO REALLY TAKE OFF, DO THIS.
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:37.260
  • YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS,
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:41.180
  • I FEEL LIKE, GIVEN ME
  • 00:01:41.180 --> 00:01:42.280
  • NOT ONLY A GIFT,
  • 00:01:42.280 --> 00:01:44.040
  • LET'S SAY, TO PREACH,
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:45.060
  • BUT I BELIEVE
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:46.100
  • HE'S GIVEN ME A GIFT
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:47.130
  • TO GET PEOPLE TO COME
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:48.200
  • AND SIT DOWN
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.230
  • AT THE TABLE OF REASON,
  • 00:01:49.230 --> 00:01:50.270
  • HAVE A CIVIL CONVERSATION,
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:52.010
  • EVEN ACROSS
  • 00:01:52.010 --> 00:01:53.040
  • THEIR TRIBAL LINES,
  • 00:01:53.040 --> 00:01:54.100
  • THEIR PARTISAN LINES
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:55.150
  • OR THEIR SECTARIAN
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:56.200
  • DENOMINATIONAL LINES.
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:57.270
  • WE'VE SEEN MIRACLES HAPPEN.
  • 00:01:57.270 --> 00:01:59.020
  • RIGHT? WE'VE WATCHED IT.
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:02:00.150
  • SO WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:02:00.150 --> 00:02:02.110
  • AND I'VE TOLD
  • 00:02:02.110 --> 00:02:03.150
  • ALL OF OUR VIEWERS,
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:04.190
  • I LOVE ALL OF YOU,
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:05.230
  • YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:02:05.230 --> 00:02:06.270
  • YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:08.010
  • AS MUCH AS I LOVE
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:09.050
  • THE LITTLE CHILDREN OVERSEAS
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:10.090
  • THAT ARE STARVING AND HUNGRY.
  • 00:02:10.090 --> 00:02:11.130
  • I LOVE YOU JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:02:11.130 --> 00:02:12.170
  • I'VE SPENT A LOT OF MY TIME
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:13.270
  • LOVING MY NEIGHBORS HERE,
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:16.080
  • JUST LIKE WE DO OVERSEAS
  • 00:02:16.080 --> 00:02:17.210
  • TRYING TO BE SURE
  • 00:02:17.210 --> 00:02:18.240
  • THAT WE HAVE FREEDOM
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:20.030
  • FOR THEIR FAMILY
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:21.150
  • SO WE CAN CONTINUE
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:22.170
  • TO TAKE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:23.190
  • TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:24.210
  • BY NOT LETTING FREEDOM CRASH.
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:25.230
  • SO THAT'S LOVE.
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:26.250
  • SINCE I'M ABLE
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:27.270
  • TO TALK TO LEADERS,
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:28.290
  • IT'S REAL HARD FOR ME WHEN
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:30.010
  • I GET A CALL FROM A LEADER,
  • 00:02:30.010 --> 00:02:31.080
  • IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS URGENT.
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:33.280
  • BETTY WILL SAY, "YOU GO
  • 00:02:33.280 --> 00:02:35.050
  • 8-16 HOURS A DAY SOMETIMES
  • 00:02:35.050 --> 00:02:36.230
  • TALKING TO PEOPLE."
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:37.250
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:38.290
  • Betty: RIGHT.
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:40.070
  • James: AND I'VE SAID TO YOU,
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:41.130
  • HOW DO I NOT ANSWER THEM?
  • 00:02:42.010 --> 00:02:45.010
  • HELP ME.
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:46.210
  • BECAUSE I'M ANSWERING THEM
  • 00:02:46.210 --> 00:02:48.040
  • AND I DO GET EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:02:48.040 --> 00:02:49.130
  • THAT THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:52.150
  • WHICH IS REST ONE DAY A WEEK,
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:55.250
  • YOU WOULDN'T DO
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:02:59.170
  • ANY OF THE OTHER TOP TEN,
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:01.190
  • VIOLATE ANY OF THE OTHER
  • 00:03:01.190 --> 00:03:02.270
  • TOP TEN TALKING TO A LEADER.
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:04.190
  • YOU WOULDN'T LIE TO A LEADER,
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:06.050
  • YOU TELL THEM THE TRUTH;
  • 00:03:06.050 --> 00:03:07.090
  • THAT'S THE ONLY THING
  • 00:03:07.090 --> 00:03:08.160
  • THAT WILL HELP THEM.
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:09.210
  • YOU WOULDN'T STEAL FROM THEM.
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:10.290
  • YOU WOULDN'T EVEN COVET
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:12.070
  • WHAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.100
  • I KNOW YOU.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:14.140
  • YOU DON'T COVET
  • 00:03:14.140 --> 00:03:15.150
  • WHAT ANYONE HAS.
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:16.200
  • YOU LOVE IT
  • 00:03:16.200 --> 00:03:17.230
  • WHEN GOD BLESSES OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:17.230 --> 00:03:18.290
  • YOU WOULDN'T TELL THEM
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:20.040
  • TO GET SOME IDOLS
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.070
  • AND PUT IT UP IN THEIR HOME.
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:22.130
  • YOU WOULDN'T DO ANY OF THAT.
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:23.200
  • SO IF YOU TAKE A DAY OFF
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:24.250
  • IT REALLY BOILS DOWN TO TRUST
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:27.030
  • AND YOU'RE ASKING ME
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:28.100
  • TO PREACH TO YOU
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:29.190
  • BUT YOU'RE ASKING ME TO DO IT
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:30.250
  • RIGHT HERE ON TELEVISION
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:31.290
  • SO IT IS YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:33.030
  • James: THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:03:33.030 --> 00:03:34.100
  • Robert: SO IT'S YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:35.170
  • SO YOU WILL BE MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:36.240
  • IF YOU'RE RESTED
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:38.040
  • WHEN YOU MINISTER
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:39.110
  • TO THESE LEADERS
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:40.160
  • THAN IF YOU'RE TIRED.
  • 00:03:40.160 --> 00:03:41.210
  • YOUR MIND WILL BE
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:42.240
  • MORE CREATIVE;
  • 00:03:42.240 --> 00:03:43.240
  • GOD KNOWS THAT.
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:44.270
  • James: JUST DON'T ANSWER?
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:45.280
  • Robert: DON'T ANSWER
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:47.020
  • THE PHONE.
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:48.060
  • NOW, HERE'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:49.110
  • IT IS NOT
  • 00:03:49.110 --> 00:03:50.150
  • THE LETTER OF THE LAW,
  • 00:03:50.150 --> 00:03:51.190
  • IT IS THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW.
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.260
  • SO JESUS EVEN SAID,
  • 00:03:52.260 --> 00:03:54.050
  • "IF YOUR OX FALLS IN THE DITCH
  • 00:03:54.050 --> 00:03:55.130
  • PULL IT OUT ON THE SABBATH."
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:56.250
  • SO THERE ARE EMERGENCIES.
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:58.020
  • HE UNDERSTANDS THAT.
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:03:59.100
  • LIFE IS LIFE.
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:00.190
  • James: EVERY PREACHER
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:01.210
  • AND LEADER I KNOW
  • 00:04:01.210 --> 00:04:02.270
  • HAS OX IN THE DITCH.
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:03.290
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:05.110
  • Robert: BUT IT COULD BE
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:06.210
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE BAD MANAGERS.
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:08.260
  • SO IF YOUR OX FALLS
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:10.130
  • IN THE DITCH EVERY WEEK
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.220
  • YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM.
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:13.040
  • SO YOU'VE GOT TO SET POLICIES
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:14.130
  • AND PROCEDURES IN PLACE.
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:15.200
  • BUT ONE OF THE THINGS ALSO
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:16.260
  • IS THAT THE SABBATH
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:18.030
  • WAS A WITNESS
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.160
  • TO THE WHOLE WORLD
  • 00:04:19.160 --> 00:04:20.230
  • THAT THERE WAS A GOD.
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:22.050
  • BECAUSE THE OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:23.160
  • WOULD SAY TO ISRAEL, "HEY!
  • 00:04:23.160 --> 00:04:25.110
  • I'LL COME IN ON SATURDAY.
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:26.190
  • WE'LL FINISH
  • 00:04:26.190 --> 00:04:27.260
  • THIS BUSINESS DEAL."
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.000
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.050
  • "WE DON'T WORK ON SATURDAY."
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:31.090
  • AND THEY'D SAY, "WHY?"
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:32.160
  • AND THEY'D SAY,
  • 00:04:32.160 --> 00:04:33.230
  • "WELL, BECAUSE GOD CREATED
  • 00:04:33.230 --> 00:04:34.280
  • THE WORLD IN SIX DAYS
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:36.040
  • AND RESTED ON THE SEVENTH.
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.090
  • SO WE REST ON THE SEVENTH."
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.120
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:39.170
  • "WHAT GOD?"
  • 00:04:39.170 --> 00:04:40.220
  • SO THEY COULD WITNESS.
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:41.270
  • SO IN THE SAME WAY
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.010
  • WHEN THESE LEADERS
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:44.050
  • ARE SAYING TO YOU, "HEY!
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:45.100
  • I NEED YOU TO TALK TO ME."
  • 00:04:45.100 --> 00:04:46.140
  • YOU SAY, "WELL,
  • 00:04:46.140 --> 00:04:47.180
  • I'M NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:48.240
  • TODAY IS MY DAY OF REST,
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:49.260
  • YOU'RE ACTUALLY BEING
  • 00:04:49.260 --> 00:04:51.020
  • A WITNESS, AND THESE LEADERS
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:52.090
  • NEED TO TAKE A DAY OFF TOO.
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:53.140
  • AND I'VE NEVER HAD A LEADER
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:54.280
  • CALL ME...
  • 00:04:54.280 --> 00:04:56.010
  • I HELP CHURCH LEADERS AS WELL,
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.030
  • AND EVEN GOVERNMENT LEADERS.
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:58.070
  • I'VE NEVER HAD A LEADER CALL
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:04:59.200
  • AND SAY, "PASTOR ROBERT,
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:01.000
  • I'VE BEEN TAKING
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:02.070
  • TOO MUCH TIME OFF
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:03.200
  • AND NOW I'M IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:05.250
  • NOW I'VE FALLEN MORALLY
  • 00:05:05.250 --> 00:05:07.000
  • OR I'VE STARTED DRINKING
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:08.100
  • EXCESSIVELY OR WHATEVER."
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.160
  • NEVER HAD THAT.
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:10.220
  • THEY ALWAYS SAY IT
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:11.280
  • THE OTHER WAY AROUND,
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:12.280
  • "I'M WORKING TOO MUCH
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.200
  • AND NOW I'VE DONE SOMETHING
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.100
  • I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE."
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:17.290
  • I'M GOING TO REPENT.
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:20.060
  • I AM.
  • 00:05:20.060 --> 00:05:21.100
  • AND BETTY, HOLD ME
  • 00:05:21.100 --> 00:05:22.100
  • AND WHEN SHE SEES YOU
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:23.130
  • SHE'LL CONFESS
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.180
  • Betty: I THINK MY BIG CONCERN
  • 00:05:26.140 --> 00:05:27.170
  • IS I WOULD SEE THIS HAPPENING
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:28.200
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:29.210
  • HIS MIND WOULD GET TIRED,
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.280
  • HIS BODY WOULD GET TIRED.
  • 00:05:30.280 --> 00:05:32.180
  • AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU,
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.180
  • I HEAR MOST
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:35.270
  • OF THESE CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:05:35.270 --> 00:05:37.000
  • AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:38.060
  • I DON'T CARE
  • 00:05:38.060 --> 00:05:39.070
  • OR LOVE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:40.120
  • HE'S TALKING TO
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:41.140
  • OR ANYTHING, I GET TIRED.
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:43.060
  • IT WEARS ME OUT.
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:44.100
  • Robert: YOU GET TIRED!
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.150
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:45.150 --> 00:05:46.190
  • I'LL TELL YOU,
  • 00:05:46.190 --> 00:05:47.240
  • SO A FRIEND OF OURS
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:49.000
  • AND HAS THE VOICE OF
  • 00:05:50.040 --> 00:05:51.080
  • SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.130
  • SAMMY RODRIGUEZ, SAID TO ME
  • 00:05:52.130 --> 00:05:54.280
  • ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO,
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:56.030
  • TO BE A MENTOR TO ME."
  • 00:05:57.090 --> 00:05:58.160
  • I SAID, "YOU DON'T WANT ME
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:05:59.240
  • TO BE A MENTOR TO YOU."
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:01.050
  • HE SAID, "YES, I DO."
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:02.080
  • I SAID, "NO YOU DON'T!
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:03.120
  • BECAUSE IF I TELL YOU
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:04.200
  • SOMETHING THAT IS
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:05.260
  • BIBLICALLY SOUND
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:07.030
  • I WILL EXPECT YOU TO DO IT.
  • 00:06:07.030 --> 00:06:09.030
  • AND I KNOW SOMETHING
  • 00:06:09.030 --> 00:06:10.090
  • YOU'RE VIOLATING
  • 00:06:10.090 --> 00:06:11.110
  • YOU NEED TO CHANGE."
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:12.160
  • AND I TALKED TO HIM
  • 00:06:12.160 --> 00:06:13.200
  • ABOUT RESTING ONE DAY A WEEK.
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:14.280
  • I SAID, "SAMMY,
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.080
  • BEFORE I AGREE TO BE A MENTOR,
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:18.140
  • I WANT PERMISSION
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.280
  • TO ASK YOUR WIFE
  • 00:06:19.280 --> 00:06:21.190
  • IF YOU'RE DOING THIS."
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.160
  • AND THE NEXT TIME I SAW HIM
  • 00:06:23.160 --> 00:06:24.280
  • HE GAVE ME A GREAT BIG HUG,
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:26.100
  • PULLED HIS CELLPHONE OUT
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:27.220
  • AND SAID, "YOU WANT
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:29.010
  • TO TALK TO MY WIFE?"
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:30.070
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID,
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.100
  • HE WAS JUST WITH US
  • 00:06:31.100 --> 00:06:32.170
  • IN OUR CONFERENCE.
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:33.200
  • AND HE SAID, "ROBERT,
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.250
  • FIVE YEARS AGO
  • 00:06:34.250 --> 00:06:36.030
  • THAT CONVERSATION
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:37.100
  • CHANGED MY LIFE.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:39.120
  • AND I'M MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:40.160
  • IN MINISTRY
  • 00:06:40.160 --> 00:06:41.190
  • AND I'M MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:06:41.190 --> 00:06:42.270
  • AS A HUSBAND AND A FATHER
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.030
  • BECAUSE OF
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:45.100
  • THAT ONE CONVERSATION."
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:46.160
  • James: OKAY, WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:47.180
  • ABOUT MINISTERS HERE A LOT,
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:48.190
  • LEADERS.
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:49.220
  • WHAT ABOUT
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:50.250
  • JUST THE AVERAGE PERSON,
  • 00:06:50.250 --> 00:06:52.030
  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO THEM?
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:53.070
  • Robert: BECAUSE WE HAVE
  • 00:06:53.070 --> 00:06:54.130
  • PRESSURES IN MINISTRY
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:55.200
  • BUT THEY HAVE PRESSURES.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:56.220
  • THEY HAVE JOBS, THEY HAVE
  • 00:06:56.220 --> 00:06:57.270
  • ALL THESE KIDS' ACTIVITIES,
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:58.270
  • THEY HAVE PRESSURES
  • 00:06:58.270 --> 00:07:00.030
  • WITH MARRIAGE.
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:01.040
  • THEY'RE BELIEVERS, THEY'RE
  • 00:07:01.040 --> 00:07:02.080
  • UNDER ATTACK JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:03.140
  • YOU AND I REACH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:04.190
  • BUT THEY REACH PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:05.260
  • THEY'RE GOING TO REACH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:07.060
  • WE'VE NEVER REACHED.
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:08.170
  • SO IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:09.290
  • WHAT YOUR PROFESSION IS,
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:11.090
  • WHETHER YOUR VOCATIONAL
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:12.200
  • OR NON-VOCATIONAL MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:13.250
  • WE'RE ALL MINISTERS.
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:15.020
  • SO EVERY PERSON,
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:16.110
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:17.200
  • IT'S LIKE SAYING, WELL,
  • 00:07:17.200 --> 00:07:18.290
  • MINISTERS SHOULDN'T
  • 00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:20.090
  • COMMIT ADULTERY.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.120
  • EVERYBODY SHOULDN'T
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:22.180
  • COMMIT ADULTERY --
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:23.250
  • THEY'RE FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:25.040
  • IT REALLY DOES BOIL DOWN TO,
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:27.030
  • DO WE TRUST GOD?
  • 00:07:27.030 --> 00:07:28.200
  • DO WE REALLY TRUST GOD?
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:29.280
  • LIKE THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:31.050
  • A PRESENTATION AT WORK
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:32.140
  • AND SO INSTEAD OF RESTING
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:33.270
  • AND THEN WRITING
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:35.030
  • THE PRESENTATION
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:36.070
  • FROM A RESTED MIND,
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.120
  • THEY WORK AND WORK AND WORK
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:39.030
  • AND THEY IGNORE
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:41.030
  • THEIR CHILDREN OR THEIR WIFE
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:43.000
  • DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.220
  • THE WORD SABBATH IN EXODUS 20
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:47.060
  • ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:48.240
  • BUT IT APPEARS FIRST
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:49.270
  • IN EXODUS 16 WITH THE MANNA.
  • 00:07:49.270 --> 00:07:52.160
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:53.250
  • "I WILL NOT PROVIDE MANNA
  • 00:07:53.280 --> 00:07:56.280
  • FROM HEAVEN FOR YOU
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:58.150
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY.
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:08:00.050
  • I'LL PROVIDE TWO DAYS' WORTH
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:01.290
  • ON THE SIXTH DAY."
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:03.130
  • SO I WANT YOU
  • 00:08:03.130 --> 00:08:04.190
  • TO THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:05.260
  • GOD IS SAYING,
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:06.290
  • "I WILL NOT PROVIDE FOR YOU
  • 00:08:06.290 --> 00:08:09.220
  • WHATEVER YOUR JOB IS,
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:10.290
  • AND YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:08:10.290 --> 00:08:12.030
  • THIS PRESENTATION AT WORK
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:13.050
  • AND YOU'RE TRYING
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:14.060
  • TO PRESENT IT.
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:15.070
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:16.120
  • ANYTHING FROM ME
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:17.190
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:18.230
  • BECAUSE I WANT YOU
  • 00:08:18.230 --> 00:08:19.290
  • TO REST ON THE SEVENTH DAY."
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:21.040
  • SO IT REALLY BOILS DOWN
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:22.120
  • TO A MATTER OF DO I TRUST
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:25.090
  • THAT IF I DO REST
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:26.170
  • ONE DAY A WEEK
  • 00:08:26.170 --> 00:08:27.200
  • THAT I COULD GET MORE DONE
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:28.260
  • IN THE SIX DAYS
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:30.040
  • BECAUSE GOD WILL BE HELPING ME
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:32.130
  • TO GET MORE DONE?
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:33.210
  • James: OKAY,
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:34.270
  • CAN YOU DESCRIBE "REST"
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:36.010
  • FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON?
  • 00:08:36.010 --> 00:08:37.040
  • DOES IT MEAN SIT AROUND
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:39.130
  • AND DO NOTHING?
  • 00:08:39.130 --> 00:08:40.180
  • DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:41.230
  • HAVE A DIVERSION OF SOMETHING
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:42.270
  • TOTALLY DIFFERENT?
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:43.290
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL SAY,
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:46.060
  • "HOW DO I REST?
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:47.120
  • DO I JUST SIT AROUND
  • 00:08:47.120 --> 00:08:48.160
  • AND READ THE BIBLE ALL DAY?
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:49.230
  • DO I SIT AND STARE
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:50.270
  • AT MY SPOUSE ALL DAY LONG?"
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:52.040
  • Betty: THAT WOULD BE NICE!
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:53.080
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:54.120
  • James: YEAH, I'VE GOT
  • 00:08:54.120 --> 00:08:55.160
  • ALL KIND OF IDEAS TOO.
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:56.200
  • Robert: SO EVEN THINK ABOUT
  • 00:08:56.200 --> 00:08:57.240
  • OUR SOCIETY TODAY
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:00.040
  • HAS TO ASK HOW TO REST.
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:03.200
  • James: I'M ASKING.
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:05.000
  • BUT THINK ABOUT 50 YEARS AGO
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:07.200
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO ASK
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:08.270
  • THAT QUESTION
  • 00:09:08.270 --> 00:09:10.000
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T CARRY
  • 00:09:10.000 --> 00:09:11.030
  • THEIR OFFICE WITH THEM
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:12.080
  • EVERYWHERE THEY WENT.
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:13.140
  • WE LITERALLY HAVE OUR OFFICE
  • 00:09:13.140 --> 00:09:14.190
  • IN OUR POCKET
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:15.260
  • EVERYWHERE WE GO.
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:17.070
  • James: YOU HAVE YOUR COMPUTER
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:18.140
  • ON YOUR PHONE.
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.210
  • Robert: IT'S JUST AMAZING.
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:20.290
  • SO I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:22.030
  • "PASTOR, WHAT DO YOU DO
  • 00:09:22.030 --> 00:09:23.120
  • ON YOUR SABBATH?"
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:25.050
  • AND I SAY WELL,
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:26.150
  • I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING
  • 00:09:26.150 --> 00:09:27.200
  • BUT I WANT TO SAY IT LOVINGLY,
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:28.250
  • THAT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:30.030
  • THE WRONG QUESTION.
  • 00:09:30.030 --> 00:09:31.060
  • IT'S NOT WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:32.110
  • IT'S WHAT DO I NOT DO?
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:33.220
  • AND WHAT I DON'T DO
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:35.050
  • IS WHATEVER I DO FOR WORK.
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:38.060
  • SO I MIGHT WORK
  • 00:09:38.060 --> 00:09:39.150
  • AROUND THE HOUSE.
  • 00:09:39.150 --> 00:09:40.180
  • I MIGHT GO TO THE LAKE.
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:41.220
  • I MIGHT SIT AROUND
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:42.270
  • AND DO NOTHING.
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:44.000
  • ALL THAT IS FINE.
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:45.010
  • I MIGHT STARE AT DEBBIE
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:46.040
  • ALL DAY.
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:47.040
  • THAT'S GREAT TOO!
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:48.080
  • BUT I DON'T...
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:49.150
  • I WRITE MESSAGES FOR WORK,
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:50.180
  • I WRITE BOOKS FOR WORK,
  • 00:09:50.180 --> 00:09:51.260
  • I HAVE TO EMAIL LEADERS
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:54.260
  • ABOUT DIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:56.020
  • WE JUST BOUGHT
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.090
  • ANOTHER CAMPUS TODAY,
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:58.140
  • THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:09:59.190
  • I HAVE TO DO THINGS LIKE THAT
  • 00:09:59.190 --> 00:10:01.050
  • BUT I DON'T DO THEM, FOR ME,
  • 00:10:01.050 --> 00:10:03.080
  • MY SEVENTH DAY IS MONDAY
  • 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:05.150
  • BECAUSE I'M GETTING READY
  • 00:10:05.150 --> 00:10:07.070
  • FOR THE WEEKEND
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:08.130
  • WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:09.160
  • AND THEN I'M WORKING
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:10.250
  • ON THE WEEKEND ACTUALLY.
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:11.290
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WORK.
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:13.040
  • SO THEY SAY,
  • 00:10:13.040 --> 00:10:14.080
  • "IS THE SABBATH SUNDAY?"
  • 00:10:14.080 --> 00:10:15.110
  • ACTUALLY, IN JEWISH CULTURE...
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:16.190
  • THEY ASK ME IF IT WAS SUNDAY.
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:17.290
  • IT WAS SATURDAY.
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:19.040
  • THE REASON WE BEGAN
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:20.090
  • WORSHIPPING ON SUNDAY WAS
  • 00:10:20.090 --> 00:10:21.100
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE ON SUNDAY
  • 00:10:21.100 --> 00:10:22.130
  • AND IT WAS GIVING
  • 00:10:22.130 --> 00:10:23.170
  • THE FIRST OF THE WEEK
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:24.210
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:10:24.210 --> 00:10:25.280
  • IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE DAY --
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.110
  • THAT'S WHAT THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:28.160
  • EVEN TELLS US.
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:29.230
  • IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE LETTER
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:30.240
  • AGAIN, IT IS THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:32.050
  • IT IS THE PRINCIPLE OF REST.
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.280
  • SO IT MIGHT BE
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:35.040
  • A DIFFERENT DAY.
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:36.160
  • I KNOW SOME MOMS
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:38.260
  • THAT WILL ACTUALLY KEEP
  • 00:10:38.260 --> 00:10:40.090
  • ANOTHER MOM'S CHILDREN ONE DAY
  • 00:10:40.090 --> 00:10:43.070
  • AND THEN THEY'LL SWITCH
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:44.150
  • ON ANOTHER DAY
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:45.210
  • SO THE MOM CAN GET SOME REST.
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:47.180
  • SO THERE ARE ALL SORTS
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:48.230
  • OF CREATIVE WAYS
  • 00:10:48.230 --> 00:10:49.290
  • YOU COULD DO THIS.
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:51.070
  • BUT WHAT THEY TESTIFY TO ME
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:52.270
  • AFTER THEY START DOING IT
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:54.130
  • IS, "THIS CHANGED OUR LIFE!
  • 00:10:54.130 --> 00:10:56.280
  • IT CHANGED OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:58.110
  • IT CHANGED
  • 00:10:58.110 --> 00:10:59.240
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT US WHEN WE
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.080
  • SIMPLY STARTED OBEYING GOD."
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:04.020
  • AND THIS IS ALSO,
  • 00:11:04.020 --> 00:11:06.110
  • IT WASN'T SOMETHING
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:07.250
  • GOD COMMANDED US
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.060
  • BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING
  • 00:11:09.060 --> 00:11:10.180
  • TO KEEP US IN LINE.
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:11.240
  • THE SABBATH IS A GIFT.
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:13.070
  • IT'S A GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:15.240
  • WHY WOULD YOU NOT UNWRAP IT?
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:17.100
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:11:17.100 --> 00:11:18.270
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:11:18.270 --> 00:11:20.100
  • "HEY, JAMES, I WANT YOU
  • 00:11:20.100 --> 00:11:21.210
  • TO START TAKING A DAY OFF."
  • 00:11:21.210 --> 00:11:23.140
  • AND YOU ARGUE WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:25.070
  • WHY WOULD YOU EVER ARGUE
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:26.200
  • ABOUT GETTING A DAY OFF?
  • 00:11:26.200 --> 00:11:28.060
  • THAT USED TO BE GOOD
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:29.170
  • WHEN YOU WENT TO WORK
  • 00:11:29.170 --> 00:11:30.240
  • AND YOUR BOSS SAID,
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.280
  • "HEY! TAKE THE DAY OFF !"
  • 00:11:31.280 --> 00:11:33.050
  • THAT WAS A BLESSING.
  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:34.130
  • WELL, THE BOSS IS TELLING US
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:35.220
  • TO TAKE A DAY OFF.
  • 00:11:35.220 --> 00:11:37.000
  • WHEN I GET STILL, I SEE HIM
  • 00:11:38.090 --> 00:11:39.290
  • EVERYWHERE MORE CLEARLY.
  • 00:11:39.290 --> 00:11:41.140
  • I'M NOT DISTRACTED.
  • 00:11:41.140 --> 00:11:42.290
  • I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:44.060
  • HEAVEN AND EARTH
  • 00:11:45.120 --> 00:11:46.170
  • DECLARES HIS GLORY.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.200
  • I CAN SEE IT.
  • 00:11:47.200 --> 00:11:48.240
  • HE SAYS HE REVEALED HIMSELF
  • 00:11:48.240 --> 00:11:49.280
  • IN EVERYTHING HE CREATED
  • 00:11:49.280 --> 00:11:51.050
  • SO THAT WE'RE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.100
  • YOU SAY YOU DON'T KNOW HIM.
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:53.170
  • WELL, YOU JUST HAVEN'T
  • 00:11:53.170 --> 00:11:54.200
  • OPENED YOUR EYES AND LOOKED
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:55.250
  • BECAUSE HE'S EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:57.050
  • HE'S REVEALED HIMSELF.
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.090
  • WHAT I FIND IS WHEN I'M
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:11:59.160
  • RESTING AND I'M REFRESHED,
  • 00:11:59.160 --> 00:12:00.260
  • AND TELL ME
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:02.060
  • IF THIS MAKES SENSE,
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:03.140
  • I FEEL LIKE I HEAR HIM
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:04.190
  • MORE CLEARLY.
  • 00:12:04.190 --> 00:12:05.250
  • I FEEL LIKE THE CLUTTER
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.000
  • IS NOT THERE.
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:08.040
  • I FIND OUT SOMETIMES
  • 00:12:08.040 --> 00:12:09.070
  • IT IS LIKE A WAVE COMES IN
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:10.140
  • THAT SO LIGHTENS MY LOAD
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:13.020
  • AND BRIGHTENS MY DAY
  • 00:12:13.020 --> 00:12:14.100
  • THAT I'M ABLE TO BRIGHTEN
  • 00:12:14.100 --> 00:12:15.210
  • EVERYBODY ELSE'S DAY
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:16.260
  • AND LIGHTEN THEIR LOAD.
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.000
  • DO YOU EXPERIENCE THAT?
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:19.070
  • MANY TIMES WITH LEADERS
  • 00:12:20.130 --> 00:12:21.190
  • IS WHAT YOU HEARD
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:22.240
  • WHEN YOU WERE RESTING,
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:24.010
  • WHEN YOU WERE REFRESHED.
  • 00:12:24.010 --> 00:12:25.110
  • IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:29.000
  • SO IT'S ALMOST LIKE
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:30.060
  • PEOPLE COULD SAY LIKE YOU,
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:31.100
  • ALMOST, OKAY, I'M CONVICTED,
  • 00:12:31.100 --> 00:12:32.130
  • I'M GOING TO REPENT.
  • 00:12:32.130 --> 00:12:33.160
  • BUT I REALLY WANT THEM
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:34.190
  • TO GET THE BOOK BECAUSE
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:35.230
  • I WENT INTO A LOT OF DETAIL.
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:36.260
  • WE HAVE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:38.060
  • IN JAPAN,
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:39.180
  • THEY FOUND A MAN DEAD
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:41.040
  • AT HIS WORKSTATION
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:43.100
  • AND THEY LOOKED BACK
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:44.210
  • AT HIS H.R. RECORDS,
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.000
  • HE HAD WORKED
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.110
  • ALMOST 16 HOURS A DAY
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:49.280
  • SEVEN DAYS A WEEK,
  • 00:12:49.280 --> 00:12:51.290
  • 110 HOURS A WEEK.
  • 00:12:51.290 --> 00:12:54.110
  • BUT HERE'S THE BIG KICKER,
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:55.250
  • HE WAS 34 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:58.040
  • HE DIED AT 34!
  • 00:12:58.040 --> 00:12:59.220
  • WELL, WHAT HE HAD DONE IS
  • 00:12:59.220 --> 00:13:00.280
  • HE'D WORKED A WHOLE LIFETIME
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.140
  • BEFORE HE WAS 34.
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:03.280
  • SO IN THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE,
  • 00:13:03.280 --> 00:13:06.210
  • THEY ACTUALLY HAVE
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:08.000
  • A WORD NOW, A NEW WORD
  • 00:13:08.000 --> 00:13:09.080
  • THEY'VE ADDED
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:10.240
  • TO THE DICTIONARY TO DESCRIBE
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.250
  • WORKING ONESELF TO DEATH.
  • 00:13:12.250 --> 00:13:15.240
  • THE KOREAN NATION
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:17.040
  • HAD TO DO IT TOO,
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:18.070
  • THE LANGUAGE,
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.090
  • AND THE CHINESE
  • 00:13:19.090 --> 00:13:20.160
  • HAD TO DO IT TOO.
  • 00:13:20.160 --> 00:13:21.200
  • THESE ARE CULTURES
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:22.290
  • THAT ARE NOT BASED
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.050
  • ON JUDEO-CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES.
  • 00:13:24.050 --> 00:13:25.170
  • IN AMERICA, WE USED TO ALWAYS
  • 00:13:25.170 --> 00:13:27.170
  • HAVE STORES CLOSED
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:29.090
  • ON SUNDAYS,
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:30.170
  • WE JUST KNEW THAT.
  • 00:13:30.170 --> 00:13:32.090
  • WE DON'T DO IT MUCH ANYMORE.
  • 00:13:32.090 --> 00:13:33.200
  • TAKE CHIC-FIL-A.
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:35.020
  • THE AVERAGE
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.170
  • FAST FOOD RESTAURANT
  • 00:13:36.170 --> 00:13:38.010
  • IS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK
  • 00:13:38.010 --> 00:13:40.020
  • BUT ALSO 24 HOURS A DAY.
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:42.190
  • AVERAGE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:43.280
  • MAKES A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:45.040
  • A YEAR.
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:46.070
  • CHIC-FIL-A,
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:47.070
  • WHICH IS ONLY OPENED SIX DAYS
  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:48.110
  • AND NOT 24 HOURS,
  • 00:13:48.110 --> 00:13:49.230
  • FIVE MILLION!
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.240
  • FIVE MILLION AVERAGE
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:53.050
  • JUST FROM DOING IT GOD'S WAY.
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:56.040
  • James: SAME WAY
  • 00:13:56.040 --> 00:13:57.130
  • WITH HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:13:57.130 --> 00:13:58.160
  • Robert: SAME WAY
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.210
  • AS HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:00.270
  • I JUST MET WITH
  • 00:14:00.270 --> 00:14:02.010
  • THE GREENS YESTERDAY.
  • 00:14:02.010 --> 00:14:03.070
  • THEY ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:04.140
  • James: WHAT DO YOU WANT
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:05.210
  • EVERYBODY TO HEAR RIGHT NOW
  • 00:14:05.210 --> 00:14:06.280
  • THAT'S WATCHING?
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:08.030
  • YOU'RE SAYING WE NEED
  • 00:14:08.030 --> 00:14:09.070
  • TO TAKE A DAY OFF,
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:10.100
  • FIND A TIME, GET REFRESHED.
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:11.140
  • YOU CAN WATCH SOMETHING
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:12.240
  • YOU ENJOY.
  • 00:14:12.240 --> 00:14:13.280
  • YOU CAN BE DIVERTED.
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:15.030
  • COULD YOU GO,
  • 00:14:15.030 --> 00:14:16.070
  • LET'S JUST SAY YOU THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.090
  • MAN, I'D LIKE TO EXERCISE.
  • 00:14:17.090 --> 00:14:18.110
  • I'M GOING TO GO
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:19.120
  • TAKE A CHAIN SAW
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:20.150
  • AND CUT SOME FIREWOOD.
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:21.190
  • BE SURE
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:22.260
  • AND START YOUR CHAIN SAW
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:24.000
  • BEFORE YOU TRY TO CUT IT.
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:26.170
  • BUT THAT'S A DIVERSION,
  • 00:14:26.170 --> 00:14:28.170
  • IT'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.000
  • Robert: DON'T DO YOUR JOB.
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:31.170
  • DO A HOBBY.
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:33.090
  • YOU KNOW, READ A MAGAZINE.
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:35.130
  • READ A BOOK FOR FUN.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.200
  • NOT A LEADERSHIP BOOK
  • 00:14:36.200 --> 00:14:37.240
  • OR A BOOK
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:39.020
  • THAT HAS TO DO WITH WORK.
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:40.060
  • JUST READ SOMETHING.
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:41.100
  • JUST RELAX AND IT IS AMAZING
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.280
  • WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:45.070
  • I TALK ABOUT AN ARTIST
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:46.160
  • IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:47.240
  • THAT DESIGNED ALBUM COVERS
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.200
  • FOR MANY OF THE FAMOUS GROUPS
  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:51.000
  • THAT WE WOULD KNOW.
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:52.090
  • AND HE STARTED READING
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:54.000
  • ABOUT THIS AND DECIDED --
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:55.240
  • SEE, MANY WORKPLACES
  • 00:14:55.240 --> 00:14:57.050
  • ARE NOW GIVING SABBATICALS
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:59.100
  • AND THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:14:59.100 --> 00:15:00.180
  • WHERE THE WORD SABBATH
  • 00:15:00.180 --> 00:15:01.210
  • CAME FROM.
  • 00:15:01.210 --> 00:15:02.230
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.250
  • GIVING SABBATICALS.
  • 00:15:04.290 --> 00:15:06.020
  • HE DECIDED
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:07.170
  • TO TAKE A SABBATICAL
  • 00:15:07.170 --> 00:15:08.230
  • AND HE REALIZED THAT HE HAD
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:09.260
  • SO MANY CREATIVE IDEAS
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:11.050
  • THAT ACTUALLY CARRIED HIM
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:14.240
  • UNTIL HIS NEXT SABBATICAL,
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:16.100
  • AND NOW HE TAKES
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:17.150
  • REGULAR SABBATICALS.
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:18.190
  • I DON'T THINK HE IS JEWISH,
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:19.270
  • I DIDN'T GET THAT OPINION
  • 00:15:19.270 --> 00:15:21.070
  • OR THAT HE IS EVEN CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:23.160
  • HE JUST LEARNED
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:24.210
  • THERE IS A PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:25.260
  • AND THESE PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:15:25.260 --> 00:15:27.010
  • FOR INSTANCE,
  • 00:15:27.010 --> 00:15:28.090
  • NOT COMMITTING ADULTERY
  • 00:15:28.090 --> 00:15:29.130
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.170
  • IT'S A PRINCIPLE WHETHER
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:31.210
  • YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN OR NOT.
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:32.250
  • NOT LYING WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:34.210
  • NOT STEALING
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:36.000
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.070
  • RESTING ONE DAY A WEEK
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.090
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:38.090 --> 00:15:39.130
  • CREATIVITY AND HIS ARTWORK.
  • 00:15:40.190 --> 00:15:41.260
  • HE GOT THE INSPIRATION
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.030
  • JUST LIKE YOU WERE TALKING
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:44.060
  • ABOUT US AS MINISTERS
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:45.080
  • AND ANYBODY WHO GETS IDEAS
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:46.210
  • ALL THROUGH THE WEEK.
  • 00:15:48.000 --> 00:15:49.020
  • I THINK A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:50.040
  • WE GET HOW WE DEAL
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:51.100
  • WITH A PROBLEM WE HAVE
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:52.140
  • WITH THE FAMILY
  • 00:15:52.140 --> 00:15:53.160
  • WE'RE NOT CLUTTERED.
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:55.230
  • I DO BELIEVE GOD REALLY
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:58.010
  • LIKES TO TALK TO US,
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:15:59.160
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN HE FINDS
  • 00:15:59.160 --> 00:16:00.280
  • TO LISTEN TO HIS VOICE
  • 00:16:02.050 --> 00:16:03.240
  • AND WE DESIRE
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:04.270
  • TO HEED HIS VOICE,
  • 00:16:04.270 --> 00:16:06.000
  • INCREDIBLE FELLOWSHIP OCCURS.
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:07.030
  • YOU FOUND THAT HAPPENING
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:08.060
  • WHEN YOU WERE ON
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:09.090
  • YOUR DAY OF REST.
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:10.120
  • THAT YOU WERE HAVING
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:11.150
  • A FELLOWSHIP RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:16:11.150 --> 00:16:12.160
  • THAT'S REFRESHING IN ITSELF?
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:13.160
  • Robert: YES!
  • 00:16:13.160 --> 00:16:14.190
  • AND AS A MATTER OF FACT
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:15.220
  • HERE'S WHAT I DO.
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:16.240
  • BECAUSE I DO HEAR THINGS
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:17.290
  • THAT I COULD USE
  • 00:16:17.290 --> 00:16:19.020
  • IN A MESSAGE
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:20.040
  • THAT COULD HELP SOMEONE.
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:21.050
  • SO WHAT I DO, LITERALLY,
  • 00:16:21.050 --> 00:16:22.130
  • IS TEXT MYSELF.
  • 00:16:22.130 --> 00:16:24.160
  • I GET THIS CREATIVE THOUGHT
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:26.120
  • BUT I'M NOT GOING TO GO
  • 00:16:26.120 --> 00:16:27.160
  • AND START WRITING
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:28.170
  • OR WORKING ON THE MESSAGE,
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:29.200
  • I JUST EMAIL MYSELF,
  • 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:31.000
  • TEXT MYSELF,
  • 00:16:31.000 --> 00:16:32.040
  • YOU KNOW YOU CAN DICTATE IT,
  • 00:16:32.040 --> 00:16:34.060
  • AND JUST CATCH THAT THOUGHT
  • 00:16:34.060 --> 00:16:35.190
  • AND GO RIGHT BACK.
  • 00:16:35.190 --> 00:16:37.020
  • I HAVE SOME LAND,
  • 00:16:37.020 --> 00:16:39.230
  • AND YOU AND I BOTH LOVE LAND
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:41.250
  • AND I HAVE A TRACTOR.
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.040
  • I GET MORE ENJOYMENT
  • 00:16:43.040 --> 00:16:46.020
  • FROM DRIVING THAT TRACTOR
  • 00:16:46.020 --> 00:16:48.010
  • AND I'LL BE STUDYING
  • 00:16:48.010 --> 00:16:49.060
  • IN THE MORNING AND BOOM,
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:50.110
  • I'M DRIVING A TRACTOR
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:51.140
  • AND GET A THOUGHT
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:52.170
  • THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:52.170 --> 00:16:53.220
  • IS WHAT EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:16:53.220 --> 00:16:54.280
  • IN THE MESSAGE ON SUNDAY,
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:56.160
  • IS THAT THOUGHT I GOT
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:57.200
  • WHEN I WAS RESTING
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:58.260
  • AND WHEN I WAS REFRESHED.
  • 00:16:58.260 --> 00:17:00.080
  • James: DO Y'ALL APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:00.080 --> 00:17:01.170
  • ROBERT SHARING THIS WITH US?
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:02.250
  • IT'S THE WAY
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:03.290
  • HE'LL GET AN INSIGHT.
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:05.270
  • YOU MOVE BY GOD TO WRITE THIS
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.280
  • AND TO TEACH IT BECAUSE OF
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:11.170
  • THE IMPACT IT HAD ON YOU.
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:13.040
  • WAS THAT WHAT MOTIVATED YOU
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:14.200
  • TO SAY, I'VE GOT TO SHARE
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:16.000
  • THIS BECAUSE IT IS SO GOOD?
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:17.110
  • GOD KNOWS IT IS.
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:18.140
  • I'VE EXPERIENCED IT.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:19.170
  • Robert: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:20.200
  • FIRST MOTIVATED ME,
  • 00:17:20.200 --> 00:17:21.240
  • AND THEN STUDYING
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:23.000
  • THE SCRIPTURES AND REALIZING
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:24.050
  • JESUS SAYING, "LISTEN,
  • 00:17:24.050 --> 00:17:25.210
  • WE DIDN'T CREATE MAN
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.230
  • FOR THE SABBATH."
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:29.200
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:31.100
  • TO SERVE THE SABBATH.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.180
  • "WE CREATED
  • 00:17:32.180 --> 00:17:33.210
  • THE SABBATH FOR YOU.
  • 00:17:33.210 --> 00:17:34.270
  • THIS IS A GIFT FROM
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:36.000
  • THE FATHER AND ME
  • 00:17:36.000 --> 00:17:37.060
  • THAT WILL HELP YOU."
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:38.150
  • WE ALL HAVE AN EMOTIONAL TANK,
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:40.140
  • A PHYSICAL TANK,
  • 00:17:40.140 --> 00:17:41.210
  • A SPIRITUAL TANK
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:43.010
  • AND A MENTAL TANK
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:44.100
  • THAT WE'RE DRAINING EVERY DAY.
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:45.280
  • AND GOD GAVE ME THIS ANALOGY.
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:48.130
  • HE SAID YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:49.210
  • THE 18-WHEELER, ROBERT,
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:50.230
  • THE BIG TANK
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:52.020
  • THAT DRIVES AROUND
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:53.050
  • AND FILLS UP GAS STATIONS.
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:55.130
  • YOU FILL UP YOUR LEADERS
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:57.110
  • AND YOU FILL UP YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.210
  • AND YOU FILL UP
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:17:59.280
  • OTHER CHRISTIAN LEADERS,
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.040
  • YOU DO THE SAME THING.
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:02.080
  • YOU ARE EXACTLY THAT.
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:03.120
  • YOU FILL UP PEOPLE
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:04.170
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:05.240
  • HERE'S THE PROBLEM THOUGH.
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:06.250
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GO BACK
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:08.010
  • TO THE REFINERY AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:09.050
  • AND HE SAID, "ROBERT, WHEN
  • 00:18:09.050 --> 00:18:10.090
  • YOU GO BACK TO THE REFINERY
  • 00:18:10.090 --> 00:18:11.140
  • YOU HAVE TO JUST SIT THERE
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:12.240
  • AND DO NOTHING WHILE
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:13.290
  • THAT TRUCK IS REFILLING.
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:15.080
  • SO YOU DECIDE,
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:17.060
  • I CAN'T JUST SIT AROUND
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.140
  • AND DO NOTHING.
  • 00:18:18.140 --> 00:18:19.200
  • YOU GO OUT AND TRY TO START
  • 00:18:19.200 --> 00:18:20.260
  • FILLING UP OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:20.260 --> 00:18:21.260
  • BUT YOU'RE RUNNING ON FUMES
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:23.080
  • AND YOU HAVE NO FUEL
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:25.020
  • TO FILL UP THE OTHER PEOPLE."
  • 00:18:25.020 --> 00:18:26.110
  • James: ISN'T THAT GOOD?
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:27.140
  • DO Y'ALL APPRECIATE
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:28.170
  • OUR PASTOR, ROBERT MORRIS?
  • 00:18:28.170 --> 00:18:31.050
  • ROBERT, WE LOVE YOU.
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.070
  • WE THANK YOU.
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:33.090
  • LOVE DEBBIE, LOVE THE KIDS.
  • 00:18:33.160 --> 00:18:36.160
  • THE BOOK IS IN THE BOOKSTORES.
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:37.250
  • YOU CAN GET IT ONLINE.
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:38.260
  • I WOULD SAY RUN, HITCHHIKE,
  • 00:18:38.260 --> 00:18:40.090
  • WHATEVER -- GET A BIKE,
  • 00:18:40.090 --> 00:18:41.180
  • WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT TO DO,
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:42.220
  • GO GET IT.
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:43.260
  • BUT YOU CAN GET IT ON LINE.
  • 00:18:43.260 --> 00:18:44.290
  • THEY WILL DELIVER IT TO YOU
  • 00:18:44.290 --> 00:18:46.060
  • A LOT OF TIMES REAL QUICK.
  • 00:18:46.060 --> 00:18:47.150
  • I WILL SAY THIS TO YOU,
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:49.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:18:49.190 --> 00:18:50.280
  • SOME CHILDREN
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:52.020
  • AND SOME FAMILIES
  • 00:18:52.020 --> 00:18:53.070
  • THAT HAVE GREAT NEED.
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:54.130
  • THEY ARE THE LEAST OF THESE
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:55.260
  • AND JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.030
  • "YOU TOUCH THEM
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:58.090
  • YOU'VE TOUCHED ME."
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:18:59.110
  • THOSE SCENES IN AFRICA
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:04.110
  • WE BOTH CONSIDERED
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:06.120
  • AND EVEN SAID
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:07.210
  • TO THE MISSIONARIES,
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:08.260
  • "I WONDER IF WE OUGHT
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:10.060
  • TO JUST COME OVER HERE
  • 00:19:10.060 --> 00:19:11.150
  • AND HELP YOU."
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:12.200
  • AND I MEAN THEY RESPONDED
  • 00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:13.280
  • SO QUICKLY, "NO PLEASE!
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:15.080
  • DON'T! NO.
