Your Plus 1 assignment for the next 4 weeks: Choose one person (family member, friend, fellow student, co-worker) and do the following each day: 1) Refrain from saying anything negative about that person. 2) Find one thing you can affirm about that person or praise in that person and tell that person and one other person. 3) Do one act of kindness toward that person each day.
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… 1 thing you appreciate about the other people on your FAITH5 huddle.|
|Read… Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:32)|
|Talk… How is God’s forgiveness of you a form of kindness? What does it look like for you to be kind as Christ has forgiven you? Were you kind today? How might you practice kindness tomorrow?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
