A few helpful lessons learned during my journey through Matthew 23-24 is that we can spread our wings of faith and soar by meshing what we believe with how we live. We do everything much more effective and efficient when we include Christ in every activity, every conversation, every problem, and every thought throughout our day.
Burdens can be heavy at times but by staying disciplined and in the light, a heavy load becomes much lighter. God is present and making things happen. Like planting a seed in fertile soil, we need to plant God’s Word in our minds and into the minds of others. The result will be food for the soul.
I’m looking forward now to sharing about my journey through Matthew 25. The readings below will be used as a guide or map and the questions will be used to stimulate thought over the next two posts. For a guide of other devotionals along my journey, please visit this page: Questions for Reflection.
How do two servants make more money? What is their reward? Of what is the one servant afraid? With what have you been entrusted? What kind of master do you have?
List the actions that please the King. Give examples of those that serve their neighbor. What is the future for those that help those in need?
Get ready with the enthusiasm what can be learned from blogs, sermons, and small group discussion for they may be useful in helping more and more to Christ. Come along on my journey or check up on my posts over the next week as I continue to write about my travel through the book of Matthew.
I’m praying that God’s abundant resources will give us confidence to step ahead and multiply what He has entrusted. Like a small pebble thrown into a pond and causing a ripple over the entire pond, I’m praying that the writings in our blogging community will cause a ripple effect that impacts the life of many.
