Paul wrote, “I thank my God every time I remember you.” - Philippians 1:3 (NIV)
“I know you! I remember when you were my fifth-grade teacher!” The young woman smiled. “What do you remember?” I asked. “The time we made lunch for our parents. We figured out a healthy menu and how much the food would cost. You even taught us table manners.”
The impression I make on others should reflect my relationship with Jesus.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
