Luke 10:38 (doing God’s work)

29 Jul Luke 10:38 (doing God’s work)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith ( All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

As they continued their journey he entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. Luke 10:38

Living Faith snippets: “Jesus listens to Martha’s complaint–“Tell her to help me”–but he hears the real problem. Martha is anxious and worried, and no amount of help from Mary is going to change that. Because he loved her, Jesus could speak directly to her problem and begin the process of healing.” by Mark Neilsen

Rich’s comments: As an “A-type” person with a strong work ethic, I can really relate to Martha. I often feel that I am at my job working circles around the people at my workplace at full speed while they are inefficiently bumbling around in slow motion. I often catch myself viewing the people that I work with as the obstacles to getting my work done as if the work itself was the meaning of life. I have tried to train myself that the true meaning of life is the relationships that you build with the people around you. The workplace is just another opportunity to show Christ’s love to others. Lord, help me to overcome my distractions and worries, and to see that the true meaning of life involves sharing Your love. Amen.

Faith Quote: “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.” by Mother Theresa

Romans 12:12

* Today’s Bible readings at Reflection on readings at
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
