Looking for Others?

“Looking for Others?”

Romans 15:1 - “We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.”

1 Peter 4:10 - “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace”

Who are the “others” in your life? Beyond the “ones” in your circle every day who are the “others” within your next levels of influence needing your hand this very day?

At the end of the day, there are times I pause and reflect, unwrapping the day's events. It is in this reflection it becomes clear how self absorbed I can be, missing opportunities to impact “others” intentionally with a kind word, a polite gesture, a small sacrifice, or just a simple acknowledgement.
Everyone reading this I am sure has heard the quote, “you only have one time to make a first impression,”. There have been so many times I have failed in my first introduction with a person. In most cases, I have been blessed with the opportunity to reconcile the relationship over time. But what about those we may never have a second chance. Those we bumped carts with in the frozen food section at the grocery store, standing in line boarding our flight, or simply passing by on the street while on vacation.
How many times do we have the chance to reveal Jesus to others? Not only in our words, but our deeds and actions?
How can we even in our spontaneous moments of our busy schedule, elevate “others,” empowering their preparation, by receiving our random acts of kindness?
Proverbs 3:27 - “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.”

Why do we withhold? Why as Christians are we not on alert, seeking those occasions to be the hands and feet of Jesus to “others.” Especially in fleeting glances and second chances?
In our definition of #prepare, one of its characteristics is to “establish.” 

As we all go about our travels of the new day, will “others” know we are Christians by our love?

Yes! 

To God be the glory!

Dads “get in the game”…

Today is game day…and so is every day…

God gives you! So…C’mon Men Suit Up!
