“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
It certainly is a crazy time right now. With the Coronavirus outbreak, we’re all experiencing different waves of emotions. Fear and panic seem to be a common theme, but we’re also seeing a country that isn’t just hoarding toilet paper but is also coming together to do our best to stop this thing and help others in need.
God has given each of us a platform and if there is ever a time to use it, it is now.
Tony Dungy writes in his book The Mentor Leader:
“Building a life of significance, and creating a legacy of real value means being willing to get your hands dirty. It means being willing to step out in your life and onto the platforms of influence you’ve been given and touch the lives of people in need.”
It’s time to do whatever we can to keep our families safe, social distancing and everything else we have to do right now as well but this is also an amazing time for you to use your platform to encourage others, to help others, and to serve others in need.
This is the time to help. This is the time to serve. This is also the time to pray. Pray more now than you’ve ever prayed and let Jesus be your solid foundation to live on.
Love you all and please reach out if you need help or if you know of a way to help others.
