A Broken World... What Can You Do?
Weekly Challenge 8 | 19 June 2022
Often in life, we are confronted with our purpose in this broken world. Wondering if you’re on the right track? That is a difficult question that no one can really answer for you, but it is something that you can work out for ourselves and through that figure out how you can help this world.
As Romans 12:3-8 tells us, we are part of a bigger body, a larger community that all work together to create something new, something better.
Perhaps we sometimes need to ask ourselves where we can best contribute to the larger society. What was I given, what can I do well that will not only be good for myself but for those around me? Knowing what we’re capable of means that there will be a harmony simply works when we're at the right place. Find your place in the world, know what you can bring to make this body function perfectly. As Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Go and Heal The World!
It's time to do a bit of stocktake:
Write down a few of your skills, assets or just things that you can do really well.
Now, think about ways you can use those skills that were gifted to YOU to make this world a better place.
It doesn't have to be this massive gesture that will end world hunger, but rather something small that will make an impact in your immediate space. And then go make a difference.
