Lord God, we thank you for the super people around us. Help us to imitate them, and grow to be the people you want us to be. Amen
Today Paul writes to the Thessalonians encouraging them to be a good example to others.
This Sunday's reading is 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 either read it yourself from your own Bible or use www.biblegateway.com . Or use this video to learn about Paul in Thessalonica https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK7oTsZ7nc4
My God is so big and so strong and so mighty
Activity for now:
Think of someone who has influenced you personally in a positive way. It may be someone in your family, a teacher, a friend, someone you have seen on TV. Make a card for that person, thanking them for the influence they have been on you.
Using a mirror, sit and look at yourself. God looks at you and loves you. What does God want you to be? How will people see God's love reflected in you? How will you be a good influencer? Spend some time thinking about the answers to these questions, then finish by saying Lord, just as Paul and the Thessalonians were, help us to be good influencers, showing you to others. Amen
Activity for this week:
Take time this week to thank those who have an influence in your life, particularly those who have helped you get to know God.
Prayer for today:
Jesus, our only true guide, is with us always. We go forward with him. Amen
For we know, brothers and sisters beloved by God, that he has chosen you...
