“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”
We had a praise and prayer meeting last night at church and one of the things that was brought before the Lord was that we would be drawn together more like a family ~ that we would be looking for ways to reach out and help and encourage one another! And that we would want to spend time really getting to know one another beyond just the casual greetings on a Sunday morning or Wednesday night.This really is very exciting because I think it is so needed in the church today ~ that we would really love and care for one another! It is an encouragement to me to be about good deeds the Lord has planned for me!
The book of Titus is an awesome book! It talks so much about good deeds! Just listen to these encouraging words in chapter 3 from the English Standard Version:
vs. 1 says “…to be ready for every good work“
vs. 8 says “…so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works“
vs. 14 says “And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.”
May the Lord use us as we step out to touch the lives of others through the good deeds He has planned for us!
