I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.

Today the word prompt is … World.

I had been thinking about the words “global community” for quite a few days. The definition on a piece of paper still in front of me reads:

“the people or nations of the world, considered as being closely connected by modern telecommunications and as being economically socially and politically interdependent.” (

Thanks to technology and social media, the world has truly become smaller. It is easier to connect with people, never seen face to face, and form a bond which is real and lasting. I immediately think of The Lulu Tree which has made its way into my heart and life –

They, too, need a Savior, a safe place to live and raise their children, food, an education, a job and clean water. As I sit here, I find myself humming the familiar children’s song  –

“Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

 Funny that God would bring me back, now as an adult, to the simple truth learned as a child in Sunday school. It truly all comes back to the beginning of all I learned then, even to the very first Scripture verse I was taught to memorize:

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16, NKJV)

God was in the ministry of ‘global community’ long before technology was ever in use. God has loved and cared for this world long before He even created it all. This world matters to Him and the lengths He will go to bring His people together will stretch clear across this world.

His people.

His world.
