Kingdom Assignment Day 8

I'm still thinking and praying about what God would have me do with this Kingdom Assignment. Because our church has 5 services over the weekend, and because I don't always attend the same services that my friends attend, I didn't know that I have three other friends who have also accepted the Kingdom Assignment. One friend is completely lost about what she's going to do. Two friends have little ideas, all are praying about the next steps.

As I was thinking about this last night, all of God's people are on Kingdom Assignment. Really, all we have is His, entrusted to us to be used to help build God's Kingdom in some way. My corner of the Kingdom right now might be Chinatown, or it might just be my cul-de-sac. The tools I've been given to complete my task are not different than the tools you've been given. The time in each day, the food on the table, the books we read, the places we visit, the coffee we share with a friend--all are tools given to be used for God's glory. Sure, these tools are not a crisp 100.00 bill in an envelope issued in challenge.

But, they are still tools which God expects that you will use to share the love of God with whomever you come in contact with each and every day. Each one of God's children have been given wealth beyond imagination! Not only the physical comforts, but also talents and passions...creative minds, logical minds, your job, or your stay-at-home-ness....all of these things can be used in ways that honor God by showing His love to others, by sharing His resources with others.

What are you doing for your Kingdom Assignment?

Love this! Not long ago, I really came to understand what it means to see with Kingdom Eyes as opposed to the World's Eyes. It makes all the difference. Assignments are everywhere, every day. :)
