Helping and Encouraging

Paul gives directions and reasons for giving to the poor in the passage 1 Corinthians 16. On the first day of every week, each person should set aside a sum of money for a collection so that the poor are helped.

Paul desires that other Christians grow spiritually. That people go to God and believe the doors of opportunity will be opened. The impossible does become possible if there is commitment with faith, courage, and love.

Friendships are very important because we have others to go through life together and when two are working together, there is greater strength, fulfillment, and impactful living. The photo above was taken when my daughter and her friends were heading back to Abilene after spending the weekend in Waco to attend the Baylor/Abilene Christian University football game.

This day with You God, help us to be people who are looking for ways to help and encourage our brothers and sisters. The best way we can do that is to share with them the positive affirmation You give us through Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
