In 2016 we can commit to making a difference in the lives of others and seeing a better life in every conceivable way. I believe God has given us a message for 2016 that has to do with being Positive, Intentional and Generous in all that we do. So often we default to living such a small and limited existence when God has put the world in our hearts. Jesus said you are the light of the world (Matt 5:14) and that we were commissioned to go to the utter most parts of the earth.(Acts 1:8) I believe that! I believe our lives are intended to be given for others in more ways than we can imagine.
What are some ways we can be Positive, Intentional and Generous? How about to write a song, a blog or a book? How about to learn a new thing about our profession or to develop a training manual for our company? We could reach out to someone in need or share our story with someone who has no hope. We could rescue a drug addict, a single mom who has been abused or someone who is the victim of sex trafficking. We could be a uniter and a peacemaker instead of a divider and a drama queen. Maybe we could visit the elderly or take communion with a shut-in. There are many ways that our life can count for more than almost anyone else thinks it can except our Heavenly Father! Small intentional acts lead to big opportunities to share God’s love with someone else.
Why not make a difference in 2016? What not start today?
