Think about it…

We’re all in this together!

Love.

Serve.

Be second or even third.

Hold the door.

Smile.

Offer support.

Think of others.

Give.

Giving

THE GIVING TREE was one of my favorite books when I was younger. I think I liked it just because it was simple and I remember one of the teachers (whom I loved) read it to my class. I really loved when teachers read to the class. Does that even happen anymore? Anyway! I’m getting off focus here. Looking at it now, this book by Shel Silverstein is really a sad story of one taking advantage of another. The tree is all used up, but that is what the tree wanted— to give all it could throughout this boy’s life—and the boy takes it! The boy never really appreciates the tree in the story, he just took what it had for him.

The book reminds me that we should give of ourselves like the tree, but what’s more important is that we appreciate those “trees” in our lives. Look around and find those that help you and support you no matter what. Make sure they KNOW you appreciate them. We should always be thankful. It really is just as important as GIVING.

Live like a BELIEVER!

Sharing my sermon notes from this morning. Thank you Bro. Kenneth for speaking what GOD puts on your heart.

Let’s live like a BELIEVER

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you. For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. (Romans 1:8-12 NKJV)

As a Beleiver…
Be thankful (vs 8)
Am I giving thanks for all things
Pray all the time (9)
Don’t worry!
Have a submissive heart (10)
Do what God Has for you to do
What is HIS will …not for your
life –just what is HIS will?
Have a GIVING heart (11)
Encourage!!! It is better to give
than receive.

If someone were to do a spiritual scan on you, what would they see?

What is in your heart?
