My mind is swirling with some many ideas this morning, but my enemy this morning is the ever spinning hands of the clock, so my post will be a little short. But I have a cool story to share. As you know, I have been writing a lot of change, transformation and surrender over the last years. Well, last Sunday I was given a very small window to talk about something that my small group is about to do, something call Sparks – which I will be writing about a lot more in the next few weeks.
Anyway, I was able to talk just a moment about how this group I lead is going to be working on a concentrated effort at taking risks and steps out on faith. On Tuesday, I received a call from one of the guys who heard my mini-spiel on Sunday. He said that he had a few coworkers that he was struggling with, but decided that he would take the risk and take them out to breakfast. That small effort was like “giving them $100”. Problem solved. What a great example of taking a step out on faith and impacting others that are around you.
You can do it to, we all can. How about today. Take a small look at the forgiveness and blessings you are basting in and reach out to those around you!
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.\Romans 12:6-8New International Version (NIV)
