Hebrews 13:16 – But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
The writer of Hebrews is reminding us to look for those opportunities to care about others lives. You see, it is so easy to be mindful of only your own needs and your own life. But as a follower of Jesus Christ you are to put others first and others needs before your own. These are the sacrifices you can offer to God that are well pleasing to Him. So make sure you don’t forget to look for those small ways to help someone else out.
So, your challenge this week is simple, create the habit of remembering others in your life. Here is a good way to start. Do you have To Do Lists or Task Lists that help you accomplish the things you want to get done each day or each week? If so, great! If not, I suggest you start to. Then I encourage you to add a section on that list that is “Others” focused? This is a place that will have items on there like, send Sally a thank you card, buy Bill a gift certificate, talk to Tim about getting together or pray for Paula’s surgery. Then when you look at your list you will be reminded to show others how much you care for them.
