Stacking Our God Blocks

Watch a child stack blocks.

It’s the pretty ones they grab first. The bright colors, the interesting faces.

Two children stack the same way, even taking blocks from the other’s stack if it’s deemed more desirable.

Unless they are twins, then the task becomes a mutual one. “You take this one.” “Do you like this one?”

When we come to Christ, we become twins in the kingdom … with every Christian believer.

Read in Philippians 2:3–4:

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Twins. “You take this one.” “I like this block. Do you want to use it?”

Whatever’s pretty, whatever’s good, whatever makes the day better, the church better, our relationship with God better, here. I want to share it with you. It will make your life better …

Are we up to it? In Christ, we are closer than a community. We are brothers, sisters, family, twins, people with a shared interest who want to help each other out and ensure that those we are closest to—our fellow Christians—live the best life possible and experience a full measure of Christ’s love.

Walking with Jesus is sharing Jesus. When we stack our God blocks with others, we are sharing the Master’s love with them.

Let’s share Jesus today.

Excerpt of the Day

When the hurting seek the truth of Christ, we must minister to them in the moment of their pain.
