“What Will You Do?”
BIBLE READING: Matthew 11-15
Over the course of this week’s reading we have seen Jesus say many great things. He has educated us on a tree being known by its fruit (Matthew 12.33-37). He also reminded us that having the faith the size of a mustard seed can make a huge difference (Matthew 13.31-33). Then, in the parable of the Sower, He explained to us just how valuable the seed of the Gospel is within our lives (Matthew 13.18-23). We have also witnessed the power of the preaching of John the Baptist (Matthew 14.1-12), the faith of the Canaanite woman (Matthew 15.21-28) as well as the faith of Peter stepping out of the boat to walk on water to meet Jesus (Matthew 14.22-33). Based just on the reading from this week alone, we can see the power of influence and ability that we have through Jesus and we have been able to see that lived out in the examples provided for us. The devotional thought is more of a challenge for us; what are we going to do this week with the opportunities we have been blessed with?
