7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
PRAY THIS WEEK
We all want to grow spiritually, but in our self-centeredness we sometimes forget that one of the primary ways God grows us is by having us serve others. This week, ask God to show you how you can get involved in serving others—both to look after their needs, but also to grow deeper in your relationship with God.
