The Weak and the Strong: God Loves them Both
Some may be able to relate to the weak kid in school that was bullied and ridiculed by the other students in class. The one who was weak resolved to build themselves up. After working out and strengthening themselves, they were no longer weak. Now that they are no longer the weak ones, some may begin to display their strength over the other weak ones. Wherever we are in our walk with Christ, it is important to remember not to look differently upon someone else in their walk with Christ, even if they are weak. Things as simple as food or ideas cannot take the place of love. Be encouraged as you learn the importance of remembering where each of us should find our strength, and so much more.

Are there “Logistics” in the Kingdom?
It’s easy to walk through a large corporate business and not take into consideration what takes place “behind the scenes”. All the intricate relationships and partnerships that must come together in order to bring so many different products at the right place at the right time are vital. As a small business owner it can be quite difficult to walk all that out. In business, this is called “outsourcing”, and is what business owners do so they can focus on the vision of their particular company. Without proper outsourcing, the many tasks and obligations can overwhelm someone to the point that the original vision is neglected. There are those in the church that may be able to relate to this, as they have been trying “to do it all”. Some can be seeing that they were needed to “outsource” what God had given them, but the reality is we should never “insourced” in the first place. God gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit so that He could build His church and we can focus on worshipping Him. Be encouraged as you hear the good news of why God gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, and so much more.
