- Have compassion on the people and the culture around you. There is no lack of opportunities for us to reach people. The multitudes are stressed, dispirited, anxious, and wore out with no shepherd to help them. You can be that person! Insert yourself into the culture around you and proclaim the good news of the King and His Kingdom. Good news is always accepted! Read an example of Jesus in action here in Matthew 9:35-38.
- Relate and reveal. Relate with people where they are at, not where you think they should be. Reveal your similar struggles, and the testimonies that Jesus turned them into. It’s hard to help someone if you can not truly relate to them. I can give a great example from my life. For most of my adult life I never had any financial hardships, and when people would ask for advice in this area I would say it’s simple, just do this, this, and this. Now that I have experienced a financial struggle, I know what it feels like, and I can truly relate. I can say it’s hard, it hurts, and this is what I did, and what I am doing to be victorious in that battle.
Live your life Kingdom first!
