Our desire is to equip you in your discipleship to Jesus. Each week we will have a new practice to help you grow as you walk in the new life you are freely given through Jesus.
Practice for the Week of April 12
This is the second parable we have looked at where Jesus addresses our relationship to our stuff.
In this parable Jesus invites his disciples (that’s you) to repurpose the wealth he has blessed us with. The world teaches us to use our money to look out for ourselves. Jesus invites us to use our wealth for his kingdom.
Living Lives of Generosity
This week you have two challenges to choose from. If you did #1 a few weeks back, move onto #2.
- Pick one person in your life you can bless this week in a tangible and generous way.
- Repurpose some of your wealth for kingdom use.
For example… If you go to Starbucks five days a week, that could easily be $15 per week. That is $60 per month! What if you cut that in half and gave $30 a month to a local ministry such as Metro Relief or sponsored one of our missionaries in the Eternity Matters Most Network?!
Don’t over think it! Do whatever first pops into your head, no matter how crazy it may sound. Maybe the Holy Spirit is asking you to step out in faith while you obey and trust him! By doing this we are using the gifts God gives us to bless the people in our lives we are called to love and serve.
