Last week we discussed that our #2 priority is securing my family
How has family contributed to shaping your life?
So far on our Priority List we have #1 Knowing God and #2 Securing My Family. Priority #3 is Being on Mission. A couple of decades ago “Mission Statements” became very popular. Every company had to have a mission statement that stated their purpose for being in business. Even churches developed mission statements to verbalize their ministry.
Gideon was down in a pit when God came to visit him, literally, but God had a different opinion of Gideon’s potential. With God’s presence with us, our mission is more than one person.
Read Judges 6:11-16
Why was Gideon threshing wheat in a winepress?
How did Gideon express his frustration to the angel?
How does God’s opinion of Gideon compare to his own?
What was the mission that God gave Gideon?
When have you felt like Gideon when given a mission?
Why does it matter that God sees our potential?
What should our mission statement say?
During this week, evaluate the mission God has given you.
Write your own mission statement.
Pray for God’s presence in all areas of our lives.
