What Matters Most

According to the volunteers and residents of Moore and Oklahoma City, this is what matters most.

What matters most is Jesus Christ, who is shown and glorified in all of these good things.

What matters most is SERVICE
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
-Galatians 5:13
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
-John 12:26

What matters most is LOVE
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
-1 John 4:7-9
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
-1 John 3:18

What matters most is FAMILY
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
-Galatians 6:10

What matters most is FRIENDS
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ  
-Romans 15: 5-6

What matters most is HOMES
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.
-Isaiah 32:18
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
-John 14:23

What matters most is SAFETY
For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
-Psalm 27:5
The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
-Proverbs 18:9-11
