Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. – Colossians 3:1 (BSB)
God hasn’t called you to live just for yourself. Rather, God has called you to be a blessing to others. God wants you to use your gifts and talents to point others to Him.
So if you’re good at music, begin to look for ways to use that gift to show others Jesus. If you’re good at baking, make cupcakes, sell them and use the money to give to missions. Don’t let your life be simply about yourself. Instead, look for an opportunity to be a blessing to others.
Today’s Challenge Be Looking For Opportunity
You might not feel like you have anything to give. Perhaps you feel like you’re going through something really hard and can’t help someone else. Don’t let those things be excuses.
Instead, purpose each day to look to opportunities. All around you, there are people who are hurting. You can take two minutes out of your day and pray for someone. God has placed opportunities all around you.
Determine today to refocus and see the opportunities around you. As you begin to look for them, you’ll be surprised how many exist. Pick one and act on it today. See God do something great through you!
