Living on Mission

hands imageThere are various definitions of what it means to live a missional life. The past several years I have given much thought to missional living, and I offer these daily questions to you as a tool.  You might want to make these questions a part of your evening prayer.

  • What have I done to help the poor today?

  • What have I done to move towards holiness today?

  • Have I prayed for my enemies today?

  • Have I shared a kind word with someone today?

  • Have I given anything away today?

  • Have I been honest today?

You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

—— Jesus of Nazareth

Lord give me the courage to seek opportunities of ministry today. Make my life one of prayer and giving, and let my presence be a blessing to all I encounter. Amen
