Last week I touched on how you can use your busy work to bless those you may have very little contact with, if any at all; from soup kitchens and global ministries, to the not so distance neighbor.
This week we’re going to focus on how you can use your Martha to bless your friends. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean your best friend since childhood, itcan be them, but it can also be people you only know through common interests, such as church groups, other parents at your kids’ activities, and anyone else you may see on a fairly regular basis.
There are all these people you know and so many of them could use some sort of something, but there’s not enough hours in the day to do whatever that something is! Where does one even begin to reach out to friends and neighbors?!
It can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. There are so many little ways in which you can remind these people in your life that they are loved and hold a value all their own. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or time, it very often doesn’t cost ANYTHING. What matters is that you just do something.
Let me ask you a question: Do you get a smile on your face when someone does or says something that lets you know, “Hey I’m thinking about you!” Of course you do, no one likes getting a mailbox full of bills, any more than they do a life full of business. While the good stuff isn’t always a priority, we have to make it a priority. We have to spend the time letting those around us know that THEY are a priority.
This Week’s Challenge: Who is the first person that pops in your mind? The neighbor you can see out your window? A friend who’s struggling? What can you do to let them know that they’re not alone, that they are loved?
