One individual life may be of priceless value to God’s purposes, and yours may be that life. ~Oswald Chambers~
Never underestimate your own purpose in the grand scheme of things. It may be that you were brought into this world for the sole purpose of touching only one life in a profound way that in turn impacts a multitude. View every encounter as a divine appointment, and every action as one that may contain eternal consequence. Nothing should be considered a trivial matter. With such a perspective, your attention to cultivating relationships, simple gestures of love and kindness, and indeed, your own sense of self worth, will never be the same again.
Thought for the day
As you continue to grow spiritually have you stopped having coincidences? Have you awaken to the power of the spirit in you and of God’s omnipresence or are you still under the misimpression that there is no rhyme nor reason for the order or disorder of things
…And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion? ~Esther 4:14 (Amp)~
We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. ~Romans 12:6-13 (NIV)~
Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood–being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it. ~Hebrews 13:1-3 (Amp)~
