Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11

“For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 
He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.  
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11

Write a note/letter/email to someone God has put on your heart. Someone who needs some kindness and a little encouragement. Share with them the peace & hope that is available to them only through Christ Jesus.

What Does the Lord Require

blue wreath pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Micah 6:6-8

“What does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”
Micah 6:8 ESV

blue wreath write

  • Using Micah 6:6-7 as a guide, what do humans think they can pay for their sins?
  • We are now sanctified by the blood of Christ, praise the Lord (Hebrews 9:11-14) ! Still, God tells us here the life He has called us to live. Rewrite verse 8 in the first person.
  • Explain how to apply this to your own life (see Philippians 2:1-11 for a picture of humility).

Thus Says the Lord…Show Kindness

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Zechariah 7:8-14

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Render true judgments,
show kindness and mercy to one another…'”
Zechariah 7:9

  • How did Zechariah know what to speak?
  • Using v. 9 & v.10, list what God asks of His people?
  • How did the people respond?
  • They refused to listen & hardened their hearts. What does Jesus tell us about our heart condition (see Mark 12:28-31)?
  • What is the consequence the people suffer?
  • What can you do today to render true judgements and show kindness & mercy?

You do not want to be in a desolate land! Pray about it and ask God to reveal if you have hardened your heart toward Him in any way. Is there any anger, unforgiveness, stubbornness, covetousness, envy, gossip…

To Do and Do Not

blue pennant pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Ephesians 4:29-32

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
Ephesians 4:32ESV

blue pennant write

  • According to Ephesians 4:29, what should & shouldn’t be coming out of your mouth?
  • When God’s Spirit lives in you, you have been sealed for redemption. For this reason, Paul implores believers with what request?
  • Let it all go! Make a list of the traits you are called to “put away.”
  • Instead, write about how you are called to live your life?
  • Write about what it means to forgive, “as God in Christ forgave you” (v. 32).
  • Pray about it…is there anyone in your life that you need to forgive as you have been forgiven?
