How are you investing spiritually in the lives of others?
What are some specific gifts or opportunities God has given you? Are you using those to benefit God’s Kingdom or keeping them to yourself? How can you start today or who can you talk to about finding a way to use your gifts?
What obstacles (fear, selfishness, not feeling qualified, etc.) are hindering your ability to invest in God’s Kingdom? What steps can you take today to overcome them?
Read the introduction to the season of Lent that starts this week (Wednesday, February 26). Make a plan for you and your family to engage with Lent.
How have you seen someone use their gifts for the benefit of others?
O God, I seek Your kingdom. I long for Your return. When I am tempted to be unfaithful, keep me faithful. Help me believe that obedience is worth it. Help me trust that You know best. Help me run the good race and keep the faith–for Your glory and my good.
As I wait for Your return, help me to invest all that I have in Your kingdom. Thank You for the gifts and abundance that You have given me. Open my eyes to opportunities to boldly use my gifts and my life for You. Lead me in wisdom, generosity, and sacrifice to see others come to know and love You. Use me to help others see the way that You love them.
Lord, all that I am and all I have is Yours. Use me for Your glory. As I wait for the fullness of Your kingdom, may it grow in power on earth as it is in heaven. May Your presence fill my life, my work, my family, my community, and my church. King Jesus, I joyfully look forward to and long for the day You return, just as You promised You would. Amen.
