We’re giving FAITH5 a small twist: FAITH5 plus 1. The plus 1 is a chance as individuals or as a family to perform a reckless act of grace throughout the week.
This week the plus 1 is to “pollute” the climate around you with positive, grace-filled words, acts, and images. Make a commitment this week to speak only positive, up-lifting words. Be thankful to others around you. Use social media to inspire with images, stories, and words.
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.|
|Read… Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you. So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him. (Luke 8:39)|
|Talk… about this passage in light of your day…your high and your low. After changing a man’s life, Jesus invited the man to share what had happened to him with others. How much has God done for you? What has he done for you? How might you share that with others? How did you share that with others.|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other with a word of affirmation. Make the sign of the cross on each other and say to each other: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
