Table Talk: Three Goals

This Week's Table Talk: 
Three Goals

This week we are learning about goals and, specifically, the three goals of a Lightglider -- Respect, Rescue and Restore. Lightgliders seek to live with respect for themselves and for each other, to help rescue those facing dangerous situations, and to work to restore the world to its intended beauty and purpose. There are specific ways that kids pursue these goals in the gameplay that they can tell you about. But, the important thing to know is that these goals are informed by a biblical worldview in the following manner:
  • Respect: Because we were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), there is an inherent dignity within us all. For this reason, every human being is worthy of respect. 
  • Rescue: To rescue means to save another from a dangerous situation. Jesus rescued us from the destruction caused by our sin and selfishness when he took our sins upon himself on the cross (I Corinthians 5:21). When we seek for others to be rescued, we are mirroring the mission of Jesus.
  • Restore: To restore means to bring something back to the way that it was meant to me. The Scriptures tell us that one day God will restore this broken world (Acts 3:21). To serve as a signpost of what is to come, Lightgliders seek to restore the beauty, purpose, joy, dignity, and freedom of this world and everyone in it in small ways each and every day.
Setting goals is a helpful way to focus the time, energy, and gifts that God has given us. 

No dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
~Philippians 3:13-15 (NLT)
