Influence and Encouragement

Not everyone has had the benefit of a Christian upbringing, but that in no way excludes them from the family of God. God has a way of adopting some of the most unlikely spiritual orphans and recruits us to help our new family members. We can show them how to live in a holy way just as Asa showed Jehoshaphat. And though they may not be your own physical children who have inherited your eyes and ears, you can still help others develop eyes to see God and ears to hear the gospel. Encourage those in your sphere of influence to cultivate a strong family resemblance to their heavenly Father.

REFLECT & PRAY:

*How did you come into God’s family?

*How have you grown to “look like” God since you joined his family?

*Which of God’s traits would you like to model for your children or for others around you?

1 Kings 22:42
