Five Minute Friday: Opportunity
We have so many amazing opportunities to be salt and light in the world. We take this seriously. We get this. We want to fulfill the Great Commission in small tangible ways everyday, starting at home within our small circles until the ripples end up extending outward to the whole world. We love these opportunities.
But do you know what I struggle with? The opportunities to show that same salt and light to fellow Christians. Especially when I am hurt by fellow Christians. This is an area God has been growing me in for years. I need to be a reflection of Christ with everyone. We have an opportunity for growth and we have the opportunity to help others grow.
The question is....do we embrace these opportunities or do we go into a tailspin of hurt? Quite the challenge. Can you do it? With Christ all things are possible. So, go forward..determined to rise to the challenge of opportunity. I dare you... you will be amazed at what God does.
