Your Plus 1 assignment: In all of your interactions with people or social media, choose kindness this week. Use social media, for example, to lift people up. Say thanks to those around you, especially for the little things. Begin to practice kindness and it will open your eyes to the power of God’s grace around you.
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 High and 1 Low from the day. What made it your high? What made it your low?|
|Read… I am the Light of the World. (John 9:5)|
|Talk… When you open your eyes, what do you see? What do you think Jesus wants you to see? What does it mean that Jesus is the light of the world in terms of your high for the day? Your low of the day? How might Jesus, the light of the world, help you better see his grace? What one thing did you see today that you normally don’t see? Or…what one thing did you notice today that you’ve always taken for granted? How can you bring light to the world?|
|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.|
