Romans 12 challenge

The challenge from Todd at Church in Bethesda this week is to intentionally study and reflect on Romans 12 for the month of January. If you’d like to read along, here’s a link to it.

How will I reflect it in my life, my home, my work, my every-day-ness? As I read through it this evening, I was struck by the way that this chapter of Scripture does filter in to every part of my life! But the phrase that jumped out at me was simply this:

Don’t think you are better than you really are. (Rom 12:3b)

Well. Ouch. Let’s stop right there and have a time of realignment.

Tomorrow I head back to work after a 10 day break. I’m not really “ready” emotionally to let go of the rhythm and pace of vacation… and yet, I must. There’s situations that just aren’t fun to deal with, and there’s really nothing I can do about it, other than change my attitude. I want to be someone who eases the tension, not increases it.

So I’m asking God to use me, and remind me that everything went along JUST FINE without me around, and so perhaps I will more gently, humbly re-enter and serve.

C'mon. Say something! But play nice. All comments are moderated.
