Mustard Seed versus McWorld

So, I haven't been so good at updating this for June. So I'll through in a new quote for everyone.

“The architects of McWorld define the ultimate in terms of economic growth and economic efficiency and would have us believe that ultimate satisfaction will come form our increasing consumption of things. The mustard seed movement defines the ultimate in terms of God’s kingdom breaking into the world to redeem a new global community from every tongue, tribe, and nation. And Jesus tells us that we will find our ultimate satisfaction not in seeking life but in losing it in service to others.” P. 22 - from Tom Sine in "Mustard Seed versus McWorld."

I don't really think I need to add anything to this quote. It tells the whole story. God's plan is ultimate joy and satisfaction based on what we give and how we serve, not on what we have.
