Not much to offer

Sure, I can make a difference, but can I make a SIGNIFICANT difference? If I spend a day picking up trash on the beach, have I made a significant difference on the ocean pollution problem? It's easy to depreciate the difference we can make because we believe it's not big enough, but. Jesus looks at what we offer through a different lens. Big or small doesn’t impress Him, but rather our willingness to give freely and generously.

Thanks in hard time

With everything our nation has been through this year, it might seem counterintuitive to set aside a day for giving thanks. But then, one might have said the same thing 157 years ago when our nation was embroiled in a brutal civil war. Yet it was in the midst of that nation-dividing, death toll rising, fear and striving moment that President Lincoln issued his Thanksgiving Proclamation. His words then ring just as true today - we must never lose sight of what we've been given, of what God's done, and of who He is.

God, answer me quickly!

When we ask a question or share a concern with someone, we expect a quick response. At what point did we decide it wasn't okay to also pray with bold, expectant urgency? No, that's not heresy, urgent, time-sensitive prayers are actually modeled for us in the Psalms.

Being mat carriers

It's one thing to try to integrate our faith in the work we do each day, but here's a probing question: what are you willing to risk to help a colleague experience the life that only Jesus offers? How bold are you willing to be?

Bold faith

Do you ever ask God for big, even impossible things? If so, do you expect Him to answer? What if He's looking for exactly that - a big, impossible prayer that's prayed with confident expectation?
