Verse of the Week
(This is a verse we can think about all week long. Let it be something that you use as a focal point throughout your week. Maybe post it somewhere where you see it daily).
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. -Philippians 2:3
Worship for your Week
(This is a short list of a few songs that will hopefully help you as you have your own personal worship time no matter where you are. Even though it is Youtube, you can stream it in your car or while you travel and just listen).

Thought of the Week
(One of my positive thoughts for the week. My hope is to always lift, equip, inspire and encourage!)
-Now this is a REAL community building attitude right here. I wonder what would happen if we didn't just ask ourselves, "What Would Jesus Do?" and we began to ask ourselves, "What is the Father already doing?" And if we came at that question always framing our present world reality with the fact that we are humble and have come to serve and consider others better than ourselves, I wonder what would really happen to everyone around us. This is not a request for us to belittle ourselves or to start looking down on ourselves and say, "oh… woe is me…" It is a COMMAND to control our self-strong urges toward complacency, arrogance, pride and self-preservation and to lower our eyes, reminding ourselves of the GREATNESS OF JESUS' cross-act and serve. There is a STRENGTH in this activity and it takes the courageous to battle their flesh, feelings and emotions looking past their current reality only to see past their small distractions to see GOD'S GRAND DESIGN for the person next to you.
Who knows. That grandmother could be the next Mother Teresa.
That homeless man may be the next Wall Street trader.
That high school kid may be the next Michael Jordan.
That grocery clerk may be the next lawyer or doctor as they work off shifts to go to school. (And what if they end up being the one that does your open heart surgery in 15 years????)
And maybe they won't be. But even if they aren't… Do you think you may be a part of changing their entire direction in life just with a smile and a true concern about their life experiences?
I think so.
Let's CARE MORE! I am not asking for more action. I am begging for more passion and compassion.
That's just a thought.
