Day 30

Genesis 12:1-3

“Now the Lord said  to Abram, “Go from your country  and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 nAnd I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and pin you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

The LORD had said to Abram “…. Go to the land I will show you …. And I will bless you… and you will be a blessing….”So there I sat on the rubber mat on the floor at a resort in Thailand, trying to entertain toddlers and keep them from whacking each other with toys. These were MK’s, missionary kids, and I was helping the team from Texas care for the MK’s so their parents could focus on coordinating their efforts to reach unreached people groups with the Gospel. Wiping runny noses helps spread the Gospel? Yep! Don’t limit yourself or limit God’s equipping and using you wherever He needs you. Maybe that mom juggling grocery bags in the parking lot needs a hand and a “Jesus loves you.” Let everything you do be done in God’s love, and don’t limit where and how the Lord will use your life to bless others!

If your limitations aren’t limitations for God to work through you, where could you shine Christ’s love today?

Tell God: I genuinely don’t want to limit YOU in my life, so help me be willing to be willing to go, wherever You send me, even if it’s “just” next door!

Day 29

1 Peter 4:9
“Be hospitable to one another without complaint."
 
Hospitality from a neighbor conveys community. There is something special in receiving hospitality when you move into a new neighborhood. How much more should we show hospitality to our spiritual family? There are times when we have needs, and those are times when your small group can rally around you. The need may be as simple as providing some groceries for a family, or opening your home for dinner, or something else, but doing it all without complaining. To use your house as a resource rather than a refuge as you host a small group is a very big deal in the Kingdom. You will find that such acts of hospitality open the door to authentic relationships and express the love of Christ.
 
What opportunities do you have around you to extend hospitality to others?
 
Are any of those opportunities ones that only pertain to you, and, if so, how can you meet them?
 
Finally, what are some ways that your small group can assist someone in need?
