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… For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)|
|Talk… What does Paul mean that though the poverty of Jesus you become rich? What is Paul’s main point about Jesus and generosity in this passage and what does it mean for you. You might read all of 2 Corinthians 8 to get a better sense of the good news Paul has for you!|
|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.|
