Old Testament Lesson

One of the great Old Testament images is the Lord literally leading the people as a cloud by day and a fire by night.  The Lord guided their steps and showed them where to go.  But notice, He didn't tell them where they were going.  He simply said, "Follow me."  

The Lord won't always show us the destination.  He will show us the next step.  He doesn't always say, follow me to here.  He most often says, follow me.  Today, even if we don't know where the road will take us, if the Lord has told us to follow Him, let us follow Him.  

New Testament Lesson

We see Paul say in this passage that he is willing to share the gospel with anyone that will listen. He is willing to do good to anyone in need. That is a great command for us as well. Today, who in our life may need a good dead done for them?  

Today, let us look towards the needs all around, and do good in whatever way that we may. For, there are needs, physical, emotional, spiritual, around us each day.  Like Paul, let us show our love to anyone in need.  

Gospel Lesson

Jesus said the faith of a mustard seed could do great things.  He doesn't need great faith.  He just needs a little.  If will have just a little faith today, He will do great things. For in the end, it's not up to us.  Its up to Him. Today, let us have faith, no matter how big.  And He will take that faith and do amazing things in ours, our families, and our communities.
