Role Player

I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing.  -Mark Wahlberg

Think of all the roles you play throughout your day: student, friend, brother, son, employee, father, husband, uncle, and neighbor.  Each of these roles presents a new ministry opportunity.  Like Paul we must strive to become “all things to all people” (1 Corinthians 9:22).  This entails that to one person you may need to be a good listener, while another a selfless servant, and another a sacrificial giver. Be all you can be to glorify our Heavenly Father. 

Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16, NIV).
