Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused. So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.
Yesterday we continued our series “Back to the Table” at Kfirst. Though this is a new series of talks, the topic is NOT new as this is our third series that visits the “table practice of Jesus.” We see our lives as a “table” of hospitality. We see opportunities to change the world is done through Jesus’ approach to others at a shared table.
The “Table” is really three specific items: It is the SYMBOL, the MESSAGE, and the ACTION of the Kingdom of God. So when we show the radical hospitality of Jesus, we show, speak, and live the Kingdom of God.
Today we had a special morning as we turned our attention to the table practice of Christ including orphans. We at Kfirst believe that true ministry to the world includes foster care and adoption. James 1:27 says,
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
Our heart is to be engaged in some way to come along side of orphans “in their distress.” It may not look like others, but it engages with foster kids to remind them they are loved and valued. You can’t do everything, but you can do something. And our question today: What is the “something” that you can do?
If you’re wanting to do something, please connect by contacting our KFAM community (click on the name). We’d love to challenge you to find some way to reach those who need the most help.
Love you all. Have an amazing week.
