Out in the highways and byways of life, many are weary and sad; Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,making the sorrowing glad.
Make me a blessing, make me a blessing, Out of my life May Jesus shine;Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,Make me a blessing to someone today.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
This has been our focus today for Mission Monday. There is a small group of flowers just picked over by one sister...the other sister wants to make a bouquet also. Greater love would split the bouquet. How hard! There are only two swings in the tree and three kids to play. Greater love would wait patiently for their turn and offer the first turn to a brother or sister. How hard! Husband walks in the door tired and grumpy and makes demands. Greater love would smile and answer those demands with gentleness. How hard!
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
The nearest opportunity to do good is in our own homes.
Mission Monday Prayers:
Pray for the church: That we would have discernment concerning these last days and not be afraid to trust and obey the Lord...even in the face of persecution.
Pray for your children: That they would have vision. That they would seek those things which are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God and that they would set their affection on things above and not on things on the earth.
Pray for your neighbors: That the Lord would present an opportunity for you to be a blessing and a Godly example to them.
Happy Mission Monday!
