Have you ever met a "Do-Er"? Someone who has a knack for walking in a room, noticing everything, and immediately being "on it"? They see the spilled orange juice and immediately wipe it up. Or they notice there are packets that need to be passed out, so they get to work right away doing that. A "Do-Er" is someone who is "on it" for everything without anyone asking.
What if this ability is not about personality or temperament, but about training yourself to open your eyes and pay attention? Sure, we all have our God-given strengths and weaknesses, but those can be leveraged to become a Do-Er rather than as an excuse to be a "Talker." This retreat we will help our teens find out their "color" temperament and, more importantly, help them find their plan of action. The truth is, God calls all of us to action, to care.
Using the story of Nehemiah, we hope to inspire and convert a lot of teens into "Do-Ers" as we talk about the importance, in God's eyes, of taking initiative, seeing a need and fulfilling it before being asked. There is no greater example of this than Nehemiah. A humble cupbearer, with a love of his country and his God, he saw a hard job that needed to be done, and he got up and did something about it. Let's all strive to be more like Nehemiah and realize we are all the color of a Do-Er.
