2 Corinthians 9:8
As we move through our busy lives it is easy to be concerned with our schedules, our finances, and all the things we juggle daily. As you look at your life and examine if you can give, if you can take the time to serve others, it is easy to say I don't have enough. Not enough time, money, or room in a schedule and budget that is already stretched to the max. I have experienced this in my own life and I am confident you will as well - God will provide. All of us need to be in prayer as to the things He is calling us to do for His kingdom. It does not have to be limited to the church, it can be in your home, your workplace, your school, anywhere you spend time. If God is calling you to intervene or help someone, please answer that call. I know I have passed up opportunity because I was too busy, out of money that month, etc. The excuses are too many to list. If you answer the call, whatever you need will be provided.
1. Have you felt a calling to help in a situation, but have let it pass?
2. What have you learned since that may change your mind?
Challenge:It is so easy to get caught up in the business of life, where one day melts into another and it is easy to lose focus of what is really important. Be attentive and look for opportunity where God has placed you. I promise they are there, not always where we expect them to be, but exactly where God knows they are.
