ARCHIPPUS – who the heck is he?

I am reading through the Bible with a plan the church is using. It is kind of fun knowing we are all reading the same thing. I’ve done this before with a group in Illinois, and it was delightful when we got together and discussed it. Lovely.

Today, in my reading I came across the name Archippus. I’ve seen the name before and I guess just skipped right over it. My reading today was in Colossians. Paul says very simply in Colossians 4:17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.” Simple and profound. Continue reading

Being Allowed To Help

You know what is a little thing? Saying the word “Yes” or “Sure” when someone offers to help.

It is such a little thing to allow someone the gift of doing something for you.

Yes, I am speaking from my heart here. I absolutely love doing stuff for people. It is part of what makes me me. And when someone is kind enough to just say “Yes,” that is a delight to the soul. Continue reading

A Spot For Everyone, and Everyone in Their Spot

There is a spot for every type of personality. Every single one.  There’s a spot for you. (Do you love Big Bang Theory? You know, Sheldon has a spot.) Whether you feel like you have a “spot” or a purpose … you do.

Do you, at times, feel like you are sitting in someone else’s chair? Perhaps you don’t think you are entitled to sit in the cool chair you have been given. But you are. Why not you? That chair can be for you!

Chairs

 

One way to make your life easier is to stop trying to fit into someone else’s chair. And don’t make someone fit a seat that you choose for them instead of allowing them to sit in the seat they were made to sit in. If you aren’t sure of your spot, start by believing there is a spot that is just for you. Because there is. Believe it!

Do It Well

If you are going to … do it well. Do it great! You know the verse:  

Col 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

If you are going to do … anything … do it great! Work at it with all your heart. Do nothing half-hearted.

That includes ministering to children. Or teaching children – as a school teacher or a home school mom. If you are going to do it, do it well. Do it very well. Continue reading
