Things to Think About…

Spend some time this week making a list of ways God has blessed you in your life… people, buy provision, work, health, talents, skills. etc. Then spend time asking God how He would like you to use these blessings to be a blessing to others.
What are some ways in your life and community that you could further live out the reality that you are a part of God’s family?
