… the Jews began to grumble at Him because He said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can He now say, “I came down from heaven?” John 6:41-42
Today you are invited to consider your family members and friends, whose gifts you may not be able to recognise because they are so close to you. “It’s just (name of your family member/friend)” you may say. When did you last affirm them for the work they are doing? How can you encourage them? Look at the people you meet today. What are they doing for Jesus, that you have never acknowledged? Consider what it would mean if they were to affirm your own gifts – and then affirm them for theirs.
May God bless you as you encourage others today.
