  • ROBERT MORRIS HELPS US UNDERSTAND WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:00:08.270 --> 00:00:10.240
  • TO TAKE THE DAY OFF.
  • 00:00:10.270 --> 00:00:12.240
  • Robert: THAT'S ACTUALLY THE WRONG QUESTION.
  • 00:00:12.270 --> 00:00:14.240
  • IT'S NOT WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:00:14.270 --> 00:00:16.240
  • IT'S WHAT DO I NOT DO?
  • 00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:18.240
  • AND WHAT I DON'T DO
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:20.240
  • IS WHATEVER I DO FOR WORK.
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:23.020
  • SO I MIGHT WORK AROUND THE HOUSE,
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:25.020
  • MIGHT GO TO THE LAKE, MIGHT SIT AROUND AND DO NOTHING --
  • 00:00:25.050 --> 00:00:28.120
  • ALL THAT IS FINE.
  • 00:00:28.150 --> 00:00:30.120
  • MIGHT STARE AT DEBBIE ALL DAY -- THAT'S GREAT TOO.
  • 00:00:30.150 --> 00:00:32.120
  • RECEIVING GOD'S GIFT OF REST -- NEXT!
  • 00:00:32.150 --> 00:00:36.010
  • 00:00:43.280 --> 00:00:51.240

  • WITH US TODAY.
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:07.120
  • James: ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:08.210
  • HE'S WRITTEN A NEW BOOK,
  • 00:01:09.290 --> 00:01:11.020
  • TAKE THE DAY OFF .
  • 00:01:11.020 --> 00:01:13.010
  • IT IS RECEIVING A GIFT
  • 00:01:13.010 --> 00:01:15.080
  • FROM GOD THAT'S CALLED "REST."
  • 00:01:15.080 --> 00:01:17.250
  • AND EVEN GOD RESTED.
  • 00:01:17.250 --> 00:01:19.200
  • ROBERT PROBABLY NEEDS
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:20.250
  • TO PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:21.270
  • BETTY HAS ALREADY TOLD HIM
  • 00:01:21.270 --> 00:01:22.270
  • HE NEEDS TO PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:22.270 --> 00:01:23.280
  • SO I'LL CONFESS AND
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:25.020
  • WE'LL LET ROBERT PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.070
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:26.070 --> 00:01:27.120

  • [Cheers & applause]
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:30.270
  • ROBERT, I'M GOING
  • 00:01:30.270 --> 00:01:32.100
  • TO LET YOU START ON ME
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:34.250
  • AND THEN I WANT YOU
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:36.030
  • TO REALLY TAKE OFF, DO THIS.
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:37.240
  • YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS,
  • 00:01:38.160 --> 00:01:41.160
  • I FEEL LIKE, GIVEN ME
  • 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:42.260
  • NOT ONLY A GIFT,
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.020
  • LET'S SAY, TO PREACH,
  • 00:01:44.020 --> 00:01:45.040
  • BUT I BELIEVE
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:46.080
  • HE'S GIVEN ME A GIFT
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:47.110
  • TO GET PEOPLE TO COME
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:48.180
  • AND SIT DOWN
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:49.210
  • AT THE TABLE OF REASON,
  • 00:01:49.210 --> 00:01:50.250
  • HAVE A CIVIL CONVERSATION,
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:51.290
  • EVEN ACROSS
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.020
  • THEIR TRIBAL LINES,
  • 00:01:53.020 --> 00:01:54.080
  • THEIR PARTISAN LINES
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:55.130
  • OR THEIR SECTARIAN
  • 00:01:55.130 --> 00:01:56.180
  • DENOMINATIONAL LINES.
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:57.250
  • WE'VE SEEN MIRACLES HAPPEN.
  • 00:01:57.250 --> 00:01:59.000
  • RIGHT? WE'VE WATCHED IT.
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:00.130
  • SO WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:02.090
  • AND I'VE TOLD
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:03.130
  • ALL OF OUR VIEWERS,
  • 00:02:03.130 --> 00:02:04.170
  • I LOVE ALL OF YOU,
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:05.210
  • YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:06.250
  • YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:02:06.250 --> 00:02:07.290
  • AS MUCH AS I LOVE
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.030
  • THE LITTLE CHILDREN OVERSEAS
  • 00:02:09.030 --> 00:02:10.070
  • THAT ARE STARVING AND HUNGRY.
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:11.110
  • I LOVE YOU JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.150
  • I'VE SPENT A LOT OF MY TIME
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:13.250
  • LOVING MY NEIGHBORS HERE,
  • 00:02:13.250 --> 00:02:16.060
  • JUST LIKE WE DO OVERSEAS
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:17.190
  • TRYING TO BE SURE
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:18.220
  • THAT WE HAVE FREEDOM
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:20.010
  • FOR THEIR FAMILY
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.130
  • SO WE CAN CONTINUE
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:22.150
  • TO TAKE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:02:22.150 --> 00:02:23.170
  • TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:24.190
  • BY NOT LETTING FREEDOM CRASH.
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:25.210
  • SO THAT'S LOVE.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:26.230
  • SINCE I'M ABLE
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:27.250
  • TO TALK TO LEADERS,
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:28.270
  • IT'S REAL HARD FOR ME WHEN
  • 00:02:28.270 --> 00:02:29.290
  • I GET A CALL FROM A LEADER,
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:31.060
  • IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS URGENT.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:33.260
  • BETTY WILL SAY, "YOU GO
  • 00:02:33.260 --> 00:02:35.030
  • 8-16 HOURS A DAY SOMETIMES
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:36.210
  • TALKING TO PEOPLE."
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:37.230
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:38.270
  • Betty: RIGHT.
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:40.050
  • James: AND I'VE SAID TO YOU,
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:41.110
  • HOW DO I NOT ANSWER THEM?
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:44.290
  • HELP ME.
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.190
  • BECAUSE I'M ANSWERING THEM
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:48.020
  • AND I DO GET EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:49.110
  • THAT THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:52.130
  • WHICH IS REST ONE DAY A WEEK,
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:55.230
  • YOU WOULDN'T DO
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:02:59.150
  • ANY OF THE OTHER TOP TEN,
  • 00:02:59.150 --> 00:03:01.170
  • VIOLATE ANY OF THE OTHER
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:02.250
  • TOP TEN TALKING TO A LEADER.
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:04.170
  • YOU WOULDN'T LIE TO A LEADER,
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:06.030
  • YOU TELL THEM THE TRUTH;
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.070
  • THAT'S THE ONLY THING
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.140
  • THAT WILL HELP THEM.
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:09.190
  • YOU WOULDN'T STEAL FROM THEM.
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:10.270
  • YOU WOULDN'T EVEN COVET
  • 00:03:10.270 --> 00:03:12.050
  • WHAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:13.080
  • I KNOW YOU.
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:14.120
  • YOU DON'T COVET
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.130
  • WHAT ANYONE HAS.
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:16.180
  • YOU LOVE IT
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:17.210
  • WHEN GOD BLESSES OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:18.270
  • YOU WOULDN'T TELL THEM
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:20.020
  • TO GET SOME IDOLS
  • 00:03:20.020 --> 00:03:21.050
  • AND PUT IT UP IN THEIR HOME.
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.110
  • YOU WOULDN'T DO ANY OF THAT.
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:23.180
  • SO IF YOU TAKE A DAY OFF
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:24.230
  • IT REALLY BOILS DOWN TO TRUST
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:27.010
  • AND YOU'RE ASKING ME
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:28.080
  • TO PREACH TO YOU
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:29.170
  • BUT YOU'RE ASKING ME TO DO IT
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:30.230
  • RIGHT HERE ON TELEVISION
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:31.270
  • SO IT IS YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:33.010
  • James: THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:34.080
  • Robert: SO IT'S YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:03:34.080 --> 00:03:35.150
  • SO YOU WILL BE MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:36.220
  • IF YOU'RE RESTED
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:38.020
  • WHEN YOU MINISTER
  • 00:03:38.020 --> 00:03:39.090
  • TO THESE LEADERS
  • 00:03:39.090 --> 00:03:40.140
  • THAN IF YOU'RE TIRED.
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:41.190
  • YOUR MIND WILL BE
  • 00:03:41.190 --> 00:03:42.220
  • MORE CREATIVE;
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:43.220
  • GOD KNOWS THAT.
  • 00:03:43.220 --> 00:03:44.250
  • James: JUST DON'T ANSWER?
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:45.260
  • Robert: DON'T ANSWER
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:47.000
  • THE PHONE.
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:48.040
  • NOW, HERE'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.090
  • IT IS NOT
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.130
  • THE LETTER OF THE LAW,
  • 00:03:50.130 --> 00:03:51.170
  • IT IS THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW.
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:52.240
  • SO JESUS EVEN SAID,
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:54.030
  • "IF YOUR OX FALLS IN THE DITCH
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:55.110
  • PULL IT OUT ON THE SABBATH."
  • 00:03:55.110 --> 00:03:56.230
  • SO THERE ARE EMERGENCIES.
  • 00:03:56.230 --> 00:03:58.000
  • HE UNDERSTANDS THAT.
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:03:59.080
  • LIFE IS LIFE.
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:00.170
  • James: EVERY PREACHER
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:01.190
  • AND LEADER I KNOW
  • 00:04:01.190 --> 00:04:02.250
  • HAS OX IN THE DITCH.
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:03.270
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:05.090
  • Robert: BUT IT COULD BE
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:06.190
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE BAD MANAGERS.
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:08.240
  • SO IF YOUR OX FALLS
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:10.110
  • IN THE DITCH EVERY WEEK
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:11.200
  • YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM.
  • 00:04:11.200 --> 00:04:13.020
  • SO YOU'VE GOT TO SET POLICIES
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.110
  • AND PROCEDURES IN PLACE.
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:15.180
  • BUT ONE OF THE THINGS ALSO
  • 00:04:15.180 --> 00:04:16.240
  • IS THAT THE SABBATH
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:18.010
  • WAS A WITNESS
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:19.140
  • TO THE WHOLE WORLD
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:20.210
  • THAT THERE WAS A GOD.
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:22.030
  • BECAUSE THE OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:23.140
  • WOULD SAY TO ISRAEL, "HEY!
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:25.090
  • I'LL COME IN ON SATURDAY.
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:26.170
  • WE'LL FINISH
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:27.240
  • THIS BUSINESS DEAL."
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:28.280
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.030
  • "WE DON'T WORK ON SATURDAY."
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:31.070
  • AND THEY'D SAY, "WHY?"
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:32.140
  • AND THEY'D SAY,
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:33.210
  • "WELL, BECAUSE GOD CREATED
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:34.260
  • THE WORLD IN SIX DAYS
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.020
  • AND RESTED ON THE SEVENTH.
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:37.070
  • SO WE REST ON THE SEVENTH."
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:38.100
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:39.150
  • "WHAT GOD?"
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:40.200
  • SO THEY COULD WITNESS.
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:41.250
  • SO IN THE SAME WAY
  • 00:04:41.250 --> 00:04:42.290
  • WHEN THESE LEADERS
  • 00:04:42.290 --> 00:04:44.030
  • ARE SAYING TO YOU, "HEY!
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.080
  • I NEED YOU TO TALK TO ME."
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:46.120
  • YOU SAY, "WELL,
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:47.160
  • I'M NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE
  • 00:04:47.160 --> 00:04:48.220
  • TODAY IS MY DAY OF REST,
  • 00:04:48.220 --> 00:04:49.240
  • YOU'RE ACTUALLY BEING
  • 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:51.000
  • A WITNESS, AND THESE LEADERS
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:52.070
  • NEED TO TAKE A DAY OFF TOO.
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:53.120
  • AND I'VE NEVER HAD A LEADER
  • 00:04:53.120 --> 00:04:54.260
  • CALL ME...
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:55.290
  • I HELP CHURCH LEADERS AS WELL,
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:57.010
  • AND EVEN GOVERNMENT LEADERS.
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.050
  • I'VE NEVER HAD A LEADER CALL
  • 00:04:58.050 --> 00:04:59.180
  • AND SAY, "PASTOR ROBERT,
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:00.280
  • I'VE BEEN TAKING
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.050
  • TOO MUCH TIME OFF
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:03.180
  • AND NOW I'M IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:05:03.180 --> 00:05:05.230
  • NOW I'VE FALLEN MORALLY
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:06.280
  • OR I'VE STARTED DRINKING
  • 00:05:06.280 --> 00:05:08.080
  • EXCESSIVELY OR WHATEVER."
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:09.140
  • NEVER HAD THAT.
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.200
  • THEY ALWAYS SAY IT
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:11.260
  • THE OTHER WAY AROUND,
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:12.260
  • "I'M WORKING TOO MUCH
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.180
  • AND NOW I'VE DONE SOMETHING
  • 00:05:14.180 --> 00:05:16.080
  • I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE."
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:17.270
  • I'M GOING TO REPENT.
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:20.040
  • I AM.
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.080
  • AND BETTY, HOLD ME
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:22.080
  • AND WHEN SHE SEES YOU
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:23.110
  • SHE'LL CONFESS
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:24.160
  • Betty: I THINK MY BIG CONCERN
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:27.150
  • IS I WOULD SEE THIS HAPPENING
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.180
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:29.190
  • HIS MIND WOULD GET TIRED,
  • 00:05:29.190 --> 00:05:30.260
  • HIS BODY WOULD GET TIRED.
  • 00:05:30.260 --> 00:05:32.160
  • AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU,
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:34.160
  • I HEAR MOST
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:35.250
  • OF THESE CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:36.280
  • AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:38.040
  • I DON'T CARE
  • 00:05:38.040 --> 00:05:39.050
  • OR LOVE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:40.100
  • HE'S TALKING TO
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:41.120
  • OR ANYTHING, I GET TIRED.
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:43.040
  • IT WEARS ME OUT.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.080
  • Robert: YOU GET TIRED!
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:45.130
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:46.170
  • I'LL TELL YOU,
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:47.220
  • SO A FRIEND OF OURS
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:48.280
  • AND HAS THE VOICE OF
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:51.060
  • SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.110
  • SAMMY RODRIGUEZ, SAID TO ME
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:54.260
  • ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO,
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:56.010
  • TO BE A MENTOR TO ME."
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:58.140
  • I SAID, "YOU DON'T WANT ME
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.220
  • TO BE A MENTOR TO YOU."
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:01.030
  • HE SAID, "YES, I DO."
  • 00:06:01.030 --> 00:06:02.060
  • I SAID, "NO YOU DON'T!
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:03.100
  • BECAUSE IF I TELL YOU
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:04.180
  • SOMETHING THAT IS
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:05.240
  • BIBLICALLY SOUND
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:07.010
  • I WILL EXPECT YOU TO DO IT.
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:09.010
  • AND I KNOW SOMETHING
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:10.070
  • YOU'RE VIOLATING
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:11.090
  • YOU NEED TO CHANGE."
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:12.140
  • AND I TALKED TO HIM
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:13.180
  • ABOUT RESTING ONE DAY A WEEK.
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:14.260
  • I SAID, "SAMMY,
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:16.060
  • BEFORE I AGREE TO BE A MENTOR,
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:18.120
  • I WANT PERMISSION
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:19.260
  • TO ASK YOUR WIFE
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:21.170
  • IF YOU'RE DOING THIS."
  • 00:06:21.170 --> 00:06:23.140
  • AND THE NEXT TIME I SAW HIM
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:24.260
  • HE GAVE ME A GREAT BIG HUG,
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:26.080
  • PULLED HIS CELLPHONE OUT
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:27.200
  • AND SAID, "YOU WANT
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:28.290
  • TO TALK TO MY WIFE?"
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.050
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID,
  • 00:06:30.050 --> 00:06:31.080
  • HE WAS JUST WITH US
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:32.150
  • IN OUR CONFERENCE.
  • 00:06:32.150 --> 00:06:33.180
  • AND HE SAID, "ROBERT,
  • 00:06:33.180 --> 00:06:34.230
  • FIVE YEARS AGO
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:36.010
  • THAT CONVERSATION
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.080
  • CHANGED MY LIFE.
  • 00:06:37.080 --> 00:06:39.100
  • AND I'M MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:40.140
  • IN MINISTRY
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:41.170
  • AND I'M MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:42.250
  • AS A HUSBAND AND A FATHER
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:44.010
  • BECAUSE OF
  • 00:06:44.010 --> 00:06:45.080
  • THAT ONE CONVERSATION."
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:46.140
  • James: OKAY, WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.160
  • ABOUT MINISTERS HERE A LOT,
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:48.170
  • LEADERS.
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:49.200
  • WHAT ABOUT
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:50.230
  • JUST THE AVERAGE PERSON,
  • 00:06:50.230 --> 00:06:52.010
  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO THEM?
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:53.050
  • Robert: BECAUSE WE HAVE
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.110
  • PRESSURES IN MINISTRY
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:55.180
  • BUT THEY HAVE PRESSURES.
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:56.200
  • THEY HAVE JOBS, THEY HAVE
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:57.250
  • ALL THESE KIDS' ACTIVITIES,
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:06:58.250
  • THEY HAVE PRESSURES
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:06:59.290
  • WITH MARRIAGE.
  • 00:06:59.290 --> 00:07:01.020
  • THEY'RE BELIEVERS, THEY'RE
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:02.060
  • UNDER ATTACK JUST AS MUCH.
  • 00:07:02.060 --> 00:07:03.120
  • YOU AND I REACH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.170
  • BUT THEY REACH PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:05.240
  • THEY'RE GOING TO REACH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:05.240 --> 00:07:07.040
  • WE'VE NEVER REACHED.
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:08.150
  • SO IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:07:08.150 --> 00:07:09.270
  • WHAT YOUR PROFESSION IS,
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:11.070
  • WHETHER YOUR VOCATIONAL
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:12.180
  • OR NON-VOCATIONAL MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:13.230
  • WE'RE ALL MINISTERS.
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:15.000
  • SO EVERY PERSON,
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:16.090
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:17.180
  • IT'S LIKE SAYING, WELL,
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:18.270
  • MINISTERS SHOULDN'T
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.070
  • COMMIT ADULTERY.
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:21.100
  • EVERYBODY SHOULDN'T
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:22.160
  • COMMIT ADULTERY --
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:23.230
  • THEY'RE FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:25.020
  • IT REALLY DOES BOIL DOWN TO,
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:27.010
  • DO WE TRUST GOD?
  • 00:07:27.010 --> 00:07:28.180
  • DO WE REALLY TRUST GOD?
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:29.260
  • LIKE THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:31.030
  • A PRESENTATION AT WORK
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:32.120
  • AND SO INSTEAD OF RESTING
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:33.250
  • AND THEN WRITING
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:35.010
  • THE PRESENTATION
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:36.050
  • FROM A RESTED MIND,
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:37.100
  • THEY WORK AND WORK AND WORK
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:39.010
  • AND THEY IGNORE
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:41.010
  • THEIR CHILDREN OR THEIR WIFE
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:42.280
  • DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:44.200
  • THE WORD SABBATH IN EXODUS 20
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:47.040
  • ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:48.220
  • BUT IT APPEARS FIRST
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:49.250
  • IN EXODUS 16 WITH THE MANNA.
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:52.140
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:53.230
  • "I WILL NOT PROVIDE MANNA
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:56.260
  • FROM HEAVEN FOR YOU
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:58.130
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY.
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:08:00.030
  • I'LL PROVIDE TWO DAYS' WORTH
  • 00:08:00.030 --> 00:08:01.270
  • ON THE SIXTH DAY."
  • 00:08:01.270 --> 00:08:03.110
  • SO I WANT YOU
  • 00:08:03.110 --> 00:08:04.170
  • TO THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:05.240
  • GOD IS SAYING,
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:06.270
  • "I WILL NOT PROVIDE FOR YOU
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:09.200
  • WHATEVER YOUR JOB IS,
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:10.270
  • AND YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:12.010
  • THIS PRESENTATION AT WORK
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:13.030
  • AND YOU'RE TRYING
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:14.040
  • TO PRESENT IT.
  • 00:08:14.040 --> 00:08:15.050
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.100
  • ANYTHING FROM ME
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:17.170
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:18.210
  • BECAUSE I WANT YOU
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:19.270
  • TO REST ON THE SEVENTH DAY."
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:21.020
  • SO IT REALLY BOILS DOWN
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.100
  • TO A MATTER OF DO I TRUST
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:25.070
  • THAT IF I DO REST
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:26.150
  • ONE DAY A WEEK
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:27.180
  • THAT I COULD GET MORE DONE
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:28.240
  • IN THE SIX DAYS
  • 00:08:28.240 --> 00:08:30.020
  • BECAUSE GOD WILL BE HELPING ME
  • 00:08:30.020 --> 00:08:32.110
  • TO GET MORE DONE?
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.190
  • James: OKAY,
  • 00:08:33.190 --> 00:08:34.250
  • CAN YOU DESCRIBE "REST"
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:35.290
  • FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON?
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:37.020
  • DOES IT MEAN SIT AROUND
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:39.110
  • AND DO NOTHING?
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:40.160
  • DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:41.210
  • HAVE A DIVERSION OF SOMETHING
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:42.250
  • TOTALLY DIFFERENT?
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:43.270
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL SAY,
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:46.040
  • "HOW DO I REST?
  • 00:08:46.040 --> 00:08:47.100
  • DO I JUST SIT AROUND
  • 00:08:47.100 --> 00:08:48.140
  • AND READ THE BIBLE ALL DAY?
  • 00:08:48.140 --> 00:08:49.210
  • DO I SIT AND STARE
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.250
  • AT MY SPOUSE ALL DAY LONG?"
  • 00:08:50.250 --> 00:08:52.020
  • Betty: THAT WOULD BE NICE!
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:53.060
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:54.100
  • James: YEAH, I'VE GOT
  • 00:08:54.100 --> 00:08:55.140
  • ALL KIND OF IDEAS TOO.
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:56.180
  • Robert: SO EVEN THINK ABOUT
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:57.220
  • OUR SOCIETY TODAY
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.020
  • HAS TO ASK HOW TO REST.
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:03.180
  • James: I'M ASKING.
  • 00:09:03.180 --> 00:09:04.280
  • BUT THINK ABOUT 50 YEARS AGO
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:07.180
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO ASK
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:08.250
  • THAT QUESTION
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:09.280
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T CARRY
  • 00:09:09.280 --> 00:09:11.010
  • THEIR OFFICE WITH THEM
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:12.060
  • EVERYWHERE THEY WENT.
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:13.120
  • WE LITERALLY HAVE OUR OFFICE
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:14.170
  • IN OUR POCKET
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:15.240
  • EVERYWHERE WE GO.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.050
  • James: YOU HAVE YOUR COMPUTER
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:18.120
  • ON YOUR PHONE.
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:19.190
  • Robert: IT'S JUST AMAZING.
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:20.270
  • SO I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:09:20.270 --> 00:09:22.010
  • "PASTOR, WHAT DO YOU DO
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:23.100
  • ON YOUR SABBATH?"
  • 00:09:23.100 --> 00:09:25.030
  • AND I SAY WELL,
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:26.130
  • I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING
  • 00:09:26.130 --> 00:09:27.180
  • BUT I WANT TO SAY IT LOVINGLY,
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:28.230
  • THAT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:28.230 --> 00:09:30.010
  • THE WRONG QUESTION.
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:31.040
  • IT'S NOT WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:09:31.040 --> 00:09:32.090
  • IT'S WHAT DO I NOT DO?
  • 00:09:32.090 --> 00:09:33.200
  • AND WHAT I DON'T DO
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:35.030
  • IS WHATEVER I DO FOR WORK.
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:38.040
  • SO I MIGHT WORK
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:39.130
  • AROUND THE HOUSE.
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:40.160
  • I MIGHT GO TO THE LAKE.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:41.200
  • I MIGHT SIT AROUND
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:42.250
  • AND DO NOTHING.
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:43.280
  • ALL THAT IS FINE.
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:44.290
  • I MIGHT STARE AT DEBBIE
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:46.020
  • ALL DAY.
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:47.020
  • THAT'S GREAT TOO!
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.060
  • BUT I DON'T...
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:49.130
  • I WRITE MESSAGES FOR WORK,
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:50.160
  • I WRITE BOOKS FOR WORK,
  • 00:09:50.160 --> 00:09:51.240
  • I HAVE TO EMAIL LEADERS
  • 00:09:51.240 --> 00:09:54.240
  • ABOUT DIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:09:54.240 --> 00:09:56.000
  • WE JUST BOUGHT
  • 00:09:56.000 --> 00:09:57.070
  • ANOTHER CAMPUS TODAY,
  • 00:09:57.070 --> 00:09:58.120
  • THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:09:59.170
  • I HAVE TO DO THINGS LIKE THAT
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:01.030
  • BUT I DON'T DO THEM, FOR ME,
  • 00:10:01.030 --> 00:10:03.060
  • MY SEVENTH DAY IS MONDAY
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:05.130
  • BECAUSE I'M GETTING READY
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:07.050
  • FOR THE WEEKEND
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:08.110
  • WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:09.140
  • AND THEN I'M WORKING
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:10.230
  • ON THE WEEKEND ACTUALLY.
  • 00:10:10.230 --> 00:10:11.270
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WORK.
  • 00:10:11.270 --> 00:10:13.020
  • SO THEY SAY,
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:14.060
  • "IS THE SABBATH SUNDAY?"
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:15.090
  • ACTUALLY, IN JEWISH CULTURE...
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:16.170
  • THEY ASK ME IF IT WAS SUNDAY.
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:17.270
  • IT WAS SATURDAY.
  • 00:10:17.270 --> 00:10:19.020
  • THE REASON WE BEGAN
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:20.070
  • WORSHIPPING ON SUNDAY WAS
  • 00:10:20.070 --> 00:10:21.080
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE ON SUNDAY
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:22.110
  • AND IT WAS GIVING
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:23.150
  • THE FIRST OF THE WEEK
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:24.190
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:25.260
  • IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE DAY --
  • 00:10:25.260 --> 00:10:27.090
  • THAT'S WHAT THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:28.140
  • EVEN TELLS US.
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.210
  • IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE LETTER
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:30.220
  • AGAIN, IT IS THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:32.030
  • IT IS THE PRINCIPLE OF REST.
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:33.260
  • SO IT MIGHT BE
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:35.020
  • A DIFFERENT DAY.
  • 00:10:35.020 --> 00:10:36.140
  • I KNOW SOME MOMS
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:38.240
  • THAT WILL ACTUALLY KEEP
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:40.070
  • ANOTHER MOM'S CHILDREN ONE DAY
  • 00:10:40.070 --> 00:10:43.050
  • AND THEN THEY'LL SWITCH
  • 00:10:43.050 --> 00:10:44.130
  • ON ANOTHER DAY
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:45.190
  • SO THE MOM CAN GET SOME REST.
  • 00:10:45.190 --> 00:10:47.160
  • SO THERE ARE ALL SORTS
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.210
  • OF CREATIVE WAYS
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:49.270
  • YOU COULD DO THIS.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:51.050
  • BUT WHAT THEY TESTIFY TO ME
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:52.250
  • AFTER THEY START DOING IT
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:54.110
  • IS, "THIS CHANGED OUR LIFE!
  • 00:10:54.110 --> 00:10:56.260
  • IT CHANGED OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.090
  • IT CHANGED
  • 00:10:58.090 --> 00:10:59.220
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT US WHEN WE
  • 00:10:59.220 --> 00:11:01.060
  • SIMPLY STARTED OBEYING GOD."
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:04.000
  • AND THIS IS ALSO,
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:06.090
  • IT WASN'T SOMETHING
  • 00:11:06.090 --> 00:11:07.230
  • GOD COMMANDED US
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:09.040
  • BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.160
  • TO KEEP US IN LINE.
  • 00:11:10.160 --> 00:11:11.220
  • THE SABBATH IS A GIFT.
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:13.050
  • IT'S A GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:11:13.050 --> 00:11:15.220
  • WHY WOULD YOU NOT UNWRAP IT?
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:17.080
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:11:17.080 --> 00:11:18.250
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:20.080
  • "HEY, JAMES, I WANT YOU
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:21.190
  • TO START TAKING A DAY OFF."
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:23.120
  • AND YOU ARGUE WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:23.120 --> 00:11:25.050
  • WHY WOULD YOU EVER ARGUE
  • 00:11:25.050 --> 00:11:26.180
  • ABOUT GETTING A DAY OFF?
  • 00:11:26.180 --> 00:11:28.040
  • THAT USED TO BE GOOD
  • 00:11:28.040 --> 00:11:29.150
  • WHEN YOU WENT TO WORK
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:30.220
  • AND YOUR BOSS SAID,
  • 00:11:30.220 --> 00:11:31.260
  • "HEY! TAKE THE DAY OFF !"
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:33.030
  • THAT WAS A BLESSING.
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:34.110
  • WELL, THE BOSS IS TELLING US
  • 00:11:34.110 --> 00:11:35.200
  • TO TAKE A DAY OFF.
  • 00:11:35.200 --> 00:11:36.280
  • WHEN I GET STILL, I SEE HIM
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:39.270
  • EVERYWHERE MORE CLEARLY.
  • 00:11:39.270 --> 00:11:41.120
  • I'M NOT DISTRACTED.
  • 00:11:41.120 --> 00:11:42.270
  • I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM
  • 00:11:42.270 --> 00:11:44.040
  • HEAVEN AND EARTH
  • 00:11:45.100 --> 00:11:46.150
  • DECLARES HIS GLORY.
  • 00:11:46.150 --> 00:11:47.180
  • I CAN SEE IT.
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:48.220
  • HE SAYS HE REVEALED HIMSELF
  • 00:11:48.220 --> 00:11:49.260
  • IN EVERYTHING HE CREATED
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:51.030
  • SO THAT WE'RE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:52.080
  • YOU SAY YOU DON'T KNOW HIM.
  • 00:11:52.080 --> 00:11:53.150
  • WELL, YOU JUST HAVEN'T
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:54.180
  • OPENED YOUR EYES AND LOOKED
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:55.230
  • BECAUSE HE'S EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.030
  • HE'S REVEALED HIMSELF.
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.070
  • WHAT I FIND IS WHEN I'M
  • 00:11:58.070 --> 00:11:59.140
  • RESTING AND I'M REFRESHED,
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:00.240
  • AND TELL ME
  • 00:12:00.240 --> 00:12:02.040
  • IF THIS MAKES SENSE,
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:03.120
  • I FEEL LIKE I HEAR HIM
  • 00:12:03.120 --> 00:12:04.170
  • MORE CLEARLY.
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:05.230
  • I FEEL LIKE THE CLUTTER
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:06.280
  • IS NOT THERE.
  • 00:12:06.280 --> 00:12:08.020
  • I FIND OUT SOMETIMES
  • 00:12:08.020 --> 00:12:09.050
  • IT IS LIKE A WAVE COMES IN
  • 00:12:09.050 --> 00:12:10.120
  • THAT SO LIGHTENS MY LOAD
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:13.000
  • AND BRIGHTENS MY DAY
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:14.080
  • THAT I'M ABLE TO BRIGHTEN
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:15.190
  • EVERYBODY ELSE'S DAY
  • 00:12:15.190 --> 00:12:16.240
  • AND LIGHTEN THEIR LOAD.
  • 00:12:16.240 --> 00:12:17.280
  • DO YOU EXPERIENCE THAT?
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:19.050
  • MANY TIMES WITH LEADERS
  • 00:12:20.110 --> 00:12:21.170
  • IS WHAT YOU HEARD
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:22.220
  • WHEN YOU WERE RESTING,
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:23.290
  • WHEN YOU WERE REFRESHED.
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:25.090
  • IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:12:27.230 --> 00:12:28.280
  • SO IT'S ALMOST LIKE
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.040
  • PEOPLE COULD SAY LIKE YOU,
  • 00:12:30.040 --> 00:12:31.080
  • ALMOST, OKAY, I'M CONVICTED,
  • 00:12:31.080 --> 00:12:32.110
  • I'M GOING TO REPENT.
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.140
  • BUT I REALLY WANT THEM
  • 00:12:33.140 --> 00:12:34.170
  • TO GET THE BOOK BECAUSE
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:35.210
  • I WENT INTO A LOT OF DETAIL.
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:36.240
  • WE HAVE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:12:36.240 --> 00:12:38.040
  • IN JAPAN,
  • 00:12:38.040 --> 00:12:39.160
  • THEY FOUND A MAN DEAD
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.020
  • AT HIS WORKSTATION
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:43.080
  • AND THEY LOOKED BACK
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:44.190
  • AT HIS H.R. RECORDS,
  • 00:12:44.190 --> 00:12:45.280
  • HE HAD WORKED
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:47.090
  • ALMOST 16 HOURS A DAY
  • 00:12:47.090 --> 00:12:49.260
  • SEVEN DAYS A WEEK,
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:51.270
  • 110 HOURS A WEEK.
  • 00:12:51.270 --> 00:12:54.090
  • BUT HERE'S THE BIG KICKER,
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:55.230
  • HE WAS 34 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:12:55.230 --> 00:12:58.020
  • HE DIED AT 34!
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.200
  • WELL, WHAT HE HAD DONE IS
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:00.260
  • HE'D WORKED A WHOLE LIFETIME
  • 00:13:00.260 --> 00:13:02.120
  • BEFORE HE WAS 34.
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.260
  • SO IN THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE,
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:06.190
  • THEY ACTUALLY HAVE
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:07.280
  • A WORD NOW, A NEW WORD
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.060
  • THEY'VE ADDED
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:10.220
  • TO THE DICTIONARY TO DESCRIBE
  • 00:13:10.220 --> 00:13:12.230
  • WORKING ONESELF TO DEATH.
  • 00:13:12.230 --> 00:13:15.220
  • THE KOREAN NATION
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:17.020
  • HAD TO DO IT TOO,
  • 00:13:17.020 --> 00:13:18.050
  • THE LANGUAGE,
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:19.070
  • AND THE CHINESE
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:20.140
  • HAD TO DO IT TOO.
  • 00:13:20.140 --> 00:13:21.180
  • THESE ARE CULTURES
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:22.270
  • THAT ARE NOT BASED
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:24.030
  • ON JUDEO-CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES.
  • 00:13:24.030 --> 00:13:25.150
  • IN AMERICA, WE USED TO ALWAYS
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:27.150
  • HAVE STORES CLOSED
  • 00:13:27.150 --> 00:13:29.070
  • ON SUNDAYS,
  • 00:13:29.070 --> 00:13:30.150
  • WE JUST KNEW THAT.
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:32.070
  • WE DON'T DO IT MUCH ANYMORE.
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:33.180
  • TAKE CHIC-FIL-A.
  • 00:13:33.180 --> 00:13:35.000
  • THE AVERAGE
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:36.150
  • FAST FOOD RESTAURANT
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.290
  • IS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:40.000
  • BUT ALSO 24 HOURS A DAY.
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:42.170
  • AVERAGE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:43.260
  • MAKES A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:13:43.260 --> 00:13:45.020
  • A YEAR.
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:46.050
  • CHIC-FIL-A,
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:47.050
  • WHICH IS ONLY OPENED SIX DAYS
  • 00:13:47.050 --> 00:13:48.090
  • AND NOT 24 HOURS,
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:49.210
  • FIVE MILLION!
  • 00:13:49.210 --> 00:13:51.220
  • FIVE MILLION AVERAGE
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:53.030
  • JUST FROM DOING IT GOD'S WAY.
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:56.020
  • James: SAME WAY
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.110
  • WITH HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:13:58.140
  • Robert: SAME WAY
  • 00:13:58.140 --> 00:13:59.190
  • AS HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:13:59.190 --> 00:14:00.250
  • I JUST MET WITH
  • 00:14:00.250 --> 00:14:01.290
  • THE GREENS YESTERDAY.
  • 00:14:01.290 --> 00:14:03.050
  • THEY ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:04.120
  • James: WHAT DO YOU WANT
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:05.190
  • EVERYBODY TO HEAR RIGHT NOW
  • 00:14:05.190 --> 00:14:06.260
  • THAT'S WATCHING?
  • 00:14:06.260 --> 00:14:08.010
  • YOU'RE SAYING WE NEED
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:09.050
  • TO TAKE A DAY OFF,
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:10.080
  • FIND A TIME, GET REFRESHED.
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:11.120
  • YOU CAN WATCH SOMETHING
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:12.220
  • YOU ENJOY.
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:13.260
  • YOU CAN BE DIVERTED.
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:15.010
  • COULD YOU GO,
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.050
  • LET'S JUST SAY YOU THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:16.050 --> 00:14:17.070
  • MAN, I'D LIKE TO EXERCISE.
  • 00:14:17.070 --> 00:14:18.090
  • I'M GOING TO GO
  • 00:14:18.090 --> 00:14:19.100
  • TAKE A CHAIN SAW
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:20.130
  • AND CUT SOME FIREWOOD.
  • 00:14:20.130 --> 00:14:21.170
  • BE SURE
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:22.240
  • AND START YOUR CHAIN SAW
  • 00:14:22.240 --> 00:14:23.280
  • BEFORE YOU TRY TO CUT IT.
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:26.150
  • BUT THAT'S A DIVERSION,
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:28.150
  • IT'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:29.280
  • Robert: DON'T DO YOUR JOB.
  • 00:14:29.280 --> 00:14:31.150
  • DO A HOBBY.
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:33.070
  • YOU KNOW, READ A MAGAZINE.
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.110
  • READ A BOOK FOR FUN.
  • 00:14:35.110 --> 00:14:36.180
  • NOT A LEADERSHIP BOOK
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:37.220
  • OR A BOOK
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:39.000
  • THAT HAS TO DO WITH WORK.
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:40.040
  • JUST READ SOMETHING.
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:41.080
  • JUST RELAX AND IT IS AMAZING
  • 00:14:41.080 --> 00:14:43.260
  • WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:43.260 --> 00:14:45.050
  • I TALK ABOUT AN ARTIST
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:46.140
  • IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:47.220
  • THAT DESIGNED ALBUM COVERS
  • 00:14:47.220 --> 00:14:49.180
  • FOR MANY OF THE FAMOUS GROUPS
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:50.280
  • THAT WE WOULD KNOW.
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:52.070
  • AND HE STARTED READING
  • 00:14:52.070 --> 00:14:53.280
  • ABOUT THIS AND DECIDED --
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:55.220
  • SEE, MANY WORKPLACES
  • 00:14:55.220 --> 00:14:57.030
  • ARE NOW GIVING SABBATICALS
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:59.080
  • AND THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:00.160
  • WHERE THE WORD SABBATH
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:01.190
  • CAME FROM.
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:02.210
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:15:02.210 --> 00:15:03.230
  • GIVING SABBATICALS.
  • 00:15:04.270 --> 00:15:06.000
  • HE DECIDED
  • 00:15:06.000 --> 00:15:07.150
  • TO TAKE A SABBATICAL
  • 00:15:07.150 --> 00:15:08.210
  • AND HE REALIZED THAT HE HAD
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:09.240
  • SO MANY CREATIVE IDEAS
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:11.030
  • THAT ACTUALLY CARRIED HIM
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:14.220
  • UNTIL HIS NEXT SABBATICAL,
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:16.080
  • AND NOW HE TAKES
  • 00:15:16.080 --> 00:15:17.130
  • REGULAR SABBATICALS.
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:18.170
  • I DON'T THINK HE IS JEWISH,
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:19.250
  • I DIDN'T GET THAT OPINION
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:21.050
  • OR THAT HE IS EVEN CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:15:21.050 --> 00:15:23.140
  • HE JUST LEARNED
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:24.190
  • THERE IS A PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:15:24.190 --> 00:15:25.240
  • AND THESE PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:26.290
  • FOR INSTANCE,
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:28.070
  • NOT COMMITTING ADULTERY
  • 00:15:28.070 --> 00:15:29.110
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:30.150
  • IT'S A PRINCIPLE WHETHER
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:31.190
  • YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN OR NOT.
  • 00:15:31.190 --> 00:15:32.230
  • NOT LYING WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:34.190
  • NOT STEALING
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:35.280
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:37.050
  • RESTING ONE DAY A WEEK
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.070
  • WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:39.110
  • CREATIVITY AND HIS ARTWORK.
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:41.240
  • HE GOT THE INSPIRATION
  • 00:15:41.240 --> 00:15:43.010
  • JUST LIKE YOU WERE TALKING
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:44.040
  • ABOUT US AS MINISTERS
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:45.060
  • AND ANYBODY WHO GETS IDEAS
  • 00:15:45.060 --> 00:15:46.190
  • ALL THROUGH THE WEEK.
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:49.000
  • I THINK A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.020
  • WE GET HOW WE DEAL
  • 00:15:50.020 --> 00:15:51.080
  • WITH A PROBLEM WE HAVE
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:52.120
  • WITH THE FAMILY
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.140
  • WE'RE NOT CLUTTERED.
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:55.210
  • I DO BELIEVE GOD REALLY
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:57.290
  • LIKES TO TALK TO US,
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:15:59.140
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN HE FINDS
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.260
  • TO LISTEN TO HIS VOICE
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:03.220
  • AND WE DESIRE
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:04.250
  • TO HEED HIS VOICE,
  • 00:16:04.250 --> 00:16:05.280
  • INCREDIBLE FELLOWSHIP OCCURS.
  • 00:16:05.280 --> 00:16:07.010
  • YOU FOUND THAT HAPPENING
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:08.040
  • WHEN YOU WERE ON
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:09.070
  • YOUR DAY OF REST.
  • 00:16:09.070 --> 00:16:10.100
  • THAT YOU WERE HAVING
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.130
  • A FELLOWSHIP RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:16:11.130 --> 00:16:12.140
  • THAT'S REFRESHING IN ITSELF?
  • 00:16:12.140 --> 00:16:13.140
  • Robert: YES!
  • 00:16:13.140 --> 00:16:14.170
  • AND AS A MATTER OF FACT
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:15.200
  • HERE'S WHAT I DO.
  • 00:16:15.200 --> 00:16:16.220
  • BECAUSE I DO HEAR THINGS
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:17.270
  • THAT I COULD USE
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:19.000
  • IN A MESSAGE
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:20.020
  • THAT COULD HELP SOMEONE.
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:21.030
  • SO WHAT I DO, LITERALLY,
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.110
  • IS TEXT MYSELF.
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:24.140
  • I GET THIS CREATIVE THOUGHT
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:26.100
  • BUT I'M NOT GOING TO GO
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:27.140
  • AND START WRITING
  • 00:16:27.140 --> 00:16:28.150
  • OR WORKING ON THE MESSAGE,
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:29.180
  • I JUST EMAIL MYSELF,
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:30.280
  • TEXT MYSELF,
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:32.020
  • YOU KNOW YOU CAN DICTATE IT,
  • 00:16:32.020 --> 00:16:34.040
  • AND JUST CATCH THAT THOUGHT
  • 00:16:34.040 --> 00:16:35.170
  • AND GO RIGHT BACK.
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:37.000
  • I HAVE SOME LAND,
  • 00:16:37.000 --> 00:16:39.210
  • AND YOU AND I BOTH LOVE LAND
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:41.230
  • AND I HAVE A TRACTOR.
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:43.020
  • I GET MORE ENJOYMENT
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:46.000
  • FROM DRIVING THAT TRACTOR
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:47.290
  • AND I'LL BE STUDYING
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:49.040
  • IN THE MORNING AND BOOM,
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:50.090
  • I'M DRIVING A TRACTOR
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:51.120
  • AND GET A THOUGHT
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.150
  • THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:52.150 --> 00:16:53.200
  • IS WHAT EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:16:54.260
  • IN THE MESSAGE ON SUNDAY,
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:56.140
  • IS THAT THOUGHT I GOT
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:57.180
  • WHEN I WAS RESTING
  • 00:16:57.180 --> 00:16:58.240
  • AND WHEN I WAS REFRESHED.
  • 00:16:58.240 --> 00:17:00.060
  • James: DO Y'ALL APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.150
  • ROBERT SHARING THIS WITH US?
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:02.230
  • IT'S THE WAY
  • 00:17:02.230 --> 00:17:03.270
  • HE'LL GET AN INSIGHT.
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:05.250
  • YOU MOVE BY GOD TO WRITE THIS
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:09.260
  • AND TO TEACH IT BECAUSE OF
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:11.150
  • THE IMPACT IT HAD ON YOU.
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:13.020
  • WAS THAT WHAT MOTIVATED YOU
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:14.180
  • TO SAY, I'VE GOT TO SHARE
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:15.280
  • THIS BECAUSE IT IS SO GOOD?
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:17.090
  • GOD KNOWS IT IS.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:18.120
  • I'VE EXPERIENCED IT.
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:19.150
  • Robert: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:20.180
  • FIRST MOTIVATED ME,
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:21.220
  • AND THEN STUDYING
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:22.280
  • THE SCRIPTURES AND REALIZING
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.030
  • JESUS SAYING, "LISTEN,
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:25.190
  • WE DIDN'T CREATE MAN
  • 00:17:25.190 --> 00:17:27.210
  • FOR THE SABBATH."
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:29.180
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:17:29.180 --> 00:17:31.080
  • TO SERVE THE SABBATH.
  • 00:17:31.080 --> 00:17:32.160
  • "WE CREATED
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:33.190
  • THE SABBATH FOR YOU.
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:34.250
  • THIS IS A GIFT FROM
  • 00:17:34.250 --> 00:17:35.280
  • THE FATHER AND ME
  • 00:17:35.280 --> 00:17:37.040
  • THAT WILL HELP YOU."
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:38.130
  • WE ALL HAVE AN EMOTIONAL TANK,
  • 00:17:38.130 --> 00:17:40.120
  • A PHYSICAL TANK,
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:41.190
  • A SPIRITUAL TANK
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.290
  • AND A MENTAL TANK
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:44.080
  • THAT WE'RE DRAINING EVERY DAY.
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.260
  • AND GOD GAVE ME THIS ANALOGY.
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:48.110
  • HE SAID YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:49.190
  • THE 18-WHEELER, ROBERT,
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:50.210
  • THE BIG TANK
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.000
  • THAT DRIVES AROUND
  • 00:17:52.000 --> 00:17:53.030
  • AND FILLS UP GAS STATIONS.
  • 00:17:53.030 --> 00:17:55.110
  • YOU FILL UP YOUR LEADERS
  • 00:17:55.110 --> 00:17:57.090
  • AND YOU FILL UP YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:58.190
  • AND YOU FILL UP
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:17:59.260
  • OTHER CHRISTIAN LEADERS,
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:01.020
  • YOU DO THE SAME THING.
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:02.060
  • YOU ARE EXACTLY THAT.
  • 00:18:02.060 --> 00:18:03.100
  • YOU FILL UP PEOPLE
  • 00:18:03.100 --> 00:18:04.150
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:18:04.150 --> 00:18:05.220
  • HERE'S THE PROBLEM THOUGH.
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:06.230
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GO BACK
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:07.290
  • TO THE REFINERY AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:09.030
  • AND HE SAID, "ROBERT, WHEN
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:10.070
  • YOU GO BACK TO THE REFINERY
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:11.120
  • YOU HAVE TO JUST SIT THERE
  • 00:18:11.120 --> 00:18:12.220
  • AND DO NOTHING WHILE
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:13.270
  • THAT TRUCK IS REFILLING.
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:15.060
  • SO YOU DECIDE,
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:17.040
  • I CAN'T JUST SIT AROUND
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.120
  • AND DO NOTHING.
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:19.180
  • YOU GO OUT AND TRY TO START
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.240
  • FILLING UP OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:20.240 --> 00:18:21.240
  • BUT YOU'RE RUNNING ON FUMES
  • 00:18:21.240 --> 00:18:23.060
  • AND YOU HAVE NO FUEL
  • 00:18:23.060 --> 00:18:25.000
  • TO FILL UP THE OTHER PEOPLE."
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:26.090
  • James: ISN'T THAT GOOD?
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:27.120
  • DO Y'ALL APPRECIATE
  • 00:18:27.120 --> 00:18:28.150
  • OUR PASTOR, ROBERT MORRIS?
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:31.030
  • ROBERT, WE LOVE YOU.
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:32.050
  • WE THANK YOU.
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:33.070
  • LOVE DEBBIE, LOVE THE KIDS.
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:36.140
  • THE BOOK IS IN THE BOOKSTORES.
  • 00:18:36.140 --> 00:18:37.230
  • YOU CAN GET IT ONLINE.
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:38.240
  • I WOULD SAY RUN, HITCHHIKE,
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.070
  • WHATEVER -- GET A BIKE,
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:41.160
  • WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT TO DO,
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:42.200
  • GO GET IT.
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:43.240
  • BUT YOU CAN GET IT ON LINE.
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:44.270
  • THEY WILL DELIVER IT TO YOU
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.040
  • A LOT OF TIMES REAL QUICK.
  • 00:18:46.040 --> 00:18:47.130
  • I WILL SAY THIS TO YOU,
  • 00:18:47.130 --> 00:18:49.170
  • WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:50.260
  • SOME CHILDREN
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:52.000
  • AND SOME FAMILIES
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:53.050
  • THAT HAVE GREAT NEED.
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:54.110
  • THEY ARE THE LEAST OF THESE
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:55.240
  • AND JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:57.010
  • "YOU TOUCH THEM
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:58.070
  • YOU'VE TOUCHED ME."
  • 00:18:58.070 --> 00:18:59.090
  • THOSE SCENES IN AFRICA
  • 00:19:01.090 --> 00:19:04.090
  • WE BOTH CONSIDERED
  • 00:19:04.090 --> 00:19:06.100
  • AND EVEN SAID
  • 00:19:06.100 --> 00:19:07.190
  • TO THE MISSIONARIES,
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:08.240
  • "I WONDER IF WE OUGHT
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.040
  • TO JUST COME OVER HERE
  • 00:19:10.040 --> 00:19:11.130
  • AND HELP YOU."
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:12.180
  • AND I MEAN THEY RESPONDED
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:13.260
  • SO QUICKLY, "NO PLEASE!
  • 00:19:13.260 --> 00:19:15.060
  • DON'T! NO.
