Parents, your child learned that people can tell about Jesus, even in difficult times. Paul stood on the steps of the temple and spoke to an angry crowd. He knew why they were angry, but that did not deter him from sharing the good news about Jesus.
As we read our Daily Bible Reading today let it shape the rest of your week. Find someone you can comfort. Who can you reach out to and help?
“Mission agencies send no one. Churches send missionaries. Don’t rob yourself of the responsibility of sending by handing off people to agencies and merely writing checks. Recruit. Equip. Commission. And when they are ready, send them in a manner that honors God.” Darren Carlson writes “Mission Agencies Send No One” here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/mission-agencies-send-no-one/
Humility is a character trait that many people equate with weakness; they wrongly equate humility with being a doormat or being passive and totally pliable. That idea of humility allows one person to be domineering or dictatorial, and the other person simply to be treated as an object. The Book of Philippians paints a far better picture of humility, and it points us to Jesus to see just how humility is to be carried out.
