SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
I Peter 5:1-4
Do what God has called you to do not because of tangible returns but instead because of the joy it brings in accomplishing what you know you are called to do. By no means do I suggest that we devalue our gifts and abilities in which there is no monetary or tangible benefit deserved, however, what I am suggesting is that the motivation and joy will never come for that. Let your light shine because you have a light and you appreciate the light and allow the light to draw both tangible and intangible benefits naturally. Let your gifts and abilities Lead, allowing your light to shine and brighten up your space, and providing direction and guidance to others to come into the light of their maximum potential, a Most Favored Status.
