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 surprise someone with a reckless act of grace. It may be paying for the person behind you in the drive through line…helping a neighbor take groceries into the house…fixing/repairing something for someone…You can do it personally or incognito.
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… I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)|
|Talk… about this passage in light of your day…your high and your low. What thing are you facing today or tomorrow where you need the strength of Jesus to help you?|
|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.|
