Trading the American Dream

Recently, my husband and I listened to a Focus on the Family broadcast where David Platt, author of Radical, was interviewed. His is one more voice calling Christians to evaluate their Western lifestyle to see if pursuing the American dream is really in line with how God has called us to live. It's worth a listen.

We also viewed a short video this week at church about what it means to be a "Trader":someone who trades in the pursuit of the American dream for a world that desperately needs Christ.  This has been one theme that God won't leave us alone about!  What are you willing to trade?

Side note: You don't need to purchase the video in order to view it--click on it, and it will play for you.

"God, do a work in me that is utterly disproportionate to who I am."
