... I did not foresee the last few days happening, but I prepared months in advance...
Challenge: evaluate your bonds to God today.
Challenge: Pray in agreement with Jesus today, not make Jesus come into agreement with you.
Challenge: Practice humility in your compassion by going out of your way to help people in need today. Strangers qualify. Short on funds? Compliment people - it's compassionate and downright feels good.
Challenge: Use today as your day to honestly humble your pride. If possible, attempt something impossible. If you are unable to attempt the impossible, reflect on that very humbling truth.
Challenge: Today, focus on the loving-kindness found in the positions you hold. Whether your a boss or employee, parent or child, pastor or congregation member - display pride in where you are (not pride that bolsters arrogance, but pride that exhibits gratitude).
Counting blessings is not the same as being grateful for them.
