SERMON REFLECTION

Micah 2 describes the greedy as laying awake at night thinking abut how to exploit others for their gain. Someone challenged me a few years ago with a convicting question: where does your mind go when it is at rest? Where it goes can be an indicator of what you value. I’m trying to direct my thoughts to Christ. I’ll do that through prayer. I might reflect on how God was at work in my day. I might think about a part of God’s character and how I see it at work in my life. I’m still not good at this, but I’m growing. I would love to hear your ideas for how you direct your thoughts toward Christ.

How to pray for our Community and our World

Wealthy, powerful people in Micah’s day took what they wanted from whomever they wanted. We are naïve if we think this doesn’t happen today. I know firsthand; my extended family is facing something like this. I’m not the only one. Pray that our hearts would be softened to how greed affects our community and our world. Pray for protection for those who are powerless. I can put names and faces on that prayer. Pray for those people you know who are facing something similar.
