Dear Friends,
 
How do you view the changes we've had to make this year ... on a personal level but also in our churches and ministries? Have the extra steps you've had to take to protect become a burden or do you see them as a way to bless?
 
What a difference it makes when we view what we do through Christ-like humility.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus ... (Phil. 2:3-5)

To get to that point we need to tend to our own hearts so love rules our actions rather than our circumstances for "love always protects" (1 Cor. 13:7).

Even the extra work putting precautions in place can be seen as a means of blessing people if we think about whatever we must do as ministering to people rather than mere duty.
 
What can you do to bless someone today?

Yours in His Service,

Phyllis Kline
