Think of a recent experience when your spiritual beliefs led to a practical application of serving others. What need in others did the experience meet? What need in you did it meet?
I am not sure this is what the Shooks are talking about, but recently I spent $300 to get three rooms cleaned and one room re-arranged. I could have done it myself, but some high school girls were raising funds for missions. So they came over and cleaned and rearranged the teen room. One of their mothers told me, “Thank you for giving them a real job. And they were amazed at your generosity.”
I believe in the need for missionaries. I believe in the good of being missionaries, even on a short term basis, for Christians. So that might count.
How do you usually respond when you reflect on your sins and shortcomings? Does it typically drive you to God’s grace or deeper into hiding
I think it drives me deeper into God’s grace because I know I can’t do it without him.
Think of a loved one who has passed away. How would you describe his or her spiritual legacy? What would you like to emulate about this person’s legacy of character? What would you like to emulate about this person’s legacy of character? What would you like to avoid?
