“…in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” -Philippians 2:3b-4
God reveals himself to the world through you. You may be the only Jesus your neighbor will ever see. And if you say, “No,” they will never see him. And if you say, “Yes,” you could change the world one person at a time.
And when one person comes to know Jesus, very often his or her spouse, and their kids, and their grandkids, and generations of people will know the Lord that wouldn’t have just because you lived by the Holy Spirit, and you prayed for someone.
Pray for someone today, and then find out what he or she needs and help him or her with it. Be “God with skin on” in their lives.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, how humbling it is to know that sharing your love with others can affect generations. May I share your love with others today. Amen.
REFLECTION: How has your family been affected by the Christian love of another?
