This past Sunday we began to look at God's plan for us to take action and make a difference in this world for His name. Out of that, the following challenges were issued:
- Search your Bible - Using your Bible's concordance or an online Bible search engine, look for scriptures that deal with the poor, poverty, oppression, etc. Of those, find two passages that you can memorize and put in your heart. Additionally, share what you've found with someone...maybe your spouse or friend.
- Pray and Seek - As we begin continue through this study, pray that God would change your heart to be more compassionate to the plan that He has for us all. Also, pray and seek for the people (and their situations) that you feel compassionate for, so that we may see as a group how God could have as act.
- Count your blessings - Take a look at what you spend money on and the things that you already have around the house. Offer a prayer of thanks as you realize how blessed you are. Additionally, you may begin to pray about where you may have flexibility to give to organizations that are already doing the Lord's work. (NOTE: I don't have in mind(nor will I ask you to give to) a Christian organization, but I'm just asking you to pray.)
