Friday’s List To Live By #92

“What can I do? is a question often asked by Christians who are not sure of their skills, abilities, or talents.

Today’s list suggests 9 things you can do, based on Galatians 6:1-10. You may not be able to do all 9 all the time, but you can probably do most of them.

9 Things You Can Do To Make A Difference

#1 I can restore the erring (v. 1).
When I see a brother slipping by the wayside I can offer a helping hand, an encouraging word, or a kind reminder of his spiritual needs.

#2 I can bear my brother’s burden (v. 2).
When I see someone struggling physically, emotionally, or spiritually, I can come alongside them and shoulder the weight they’re carrying.

#3 I can face the facts about myself (v.3)
Like Paul, I realize that “I am what I am by the grace of God,” so there’s no room for pride.

#4 I can do my own work (v. 4).
I will faithfully do what I can do, in the best way I can, where ever I am.

#5 I can bear my own burden (v. 5).
I understand some things are my personal responsibility. No one can do it for me. I will carry the load assigned to me.

#6 I can support a teacher (v.6)
Either financially, emotionally, or spiritually I will hold up the hands of those proclaiming God’s Word.

#7 I can realize harvest time is coming (v. 7-8).
Without deceiving either myself or others, I sow spiritual seeds expecting a spiritual harvest.

#8 I can keep on keeping on (v. 9).
Quitting is not in my vocabulary. I will not give in. I will not give up. I will not give out.

#9 I can do good to everyone I meet (v. 10)
When “opportunity knocks” I will open the door. I will seek, see and seize opportunities to do good.

What can you do? Today?
