Lent Day 24

Day 24 Friday March 13 – [S] Invite someone to your house for dinner

RO: We live in a world that is dark and scary. // But we are called as Christians to be lights shining like stars in the midst of that world. // Judge less – we have the freedom to love people regardless of who they are and how they are acting. We are not the judge of the world so we can love without having to worry that we love someone too much. We are never going to get to the judgement seat of heaven and have God say, “Sorry, you just loved too much.” // Pray – Pray with someone else. What if you said “Can I pray for you?” and you just did it right then? // Invite – We have all kinds of access to the lights of Christ. What if you invited some people into that light? // God is calling you to be the light to the world this Lent. Can you do it?

Hosea 14: 2-10

“I am like a verdant cypress tree”– Because of me you bear fruit! Let him who is wise understand these things;

let him who is prudent know them. Straight are the paths of the LORD, in them the just walk, but sinners stumble in them.

Mark 12: 28-34

One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, “Which is the first of all the commandments?”

Jesus replied, “The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,  with all your mind,  and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Last Sunday I had huge hopes for myself for this one. Come day of what did I do? Took the lazy way out. Bridgette was coming over anyways so I invited her to dinner … that counts? I mean, we ate together. It was nice. We definitely had a nice conversation. But I think this barely counts as doing.
