Re:Verse reading–2 Kings 5 (day five) 

The  encouragement and testimony of a Jewish slave girl were a catalyst for the events in 2 Kings 5.  She gave testimony of what she believed and pointed others to God (thru His prophet).  Her words were humble, confident, and offered hope.

Do we encourage others with this same attitude and approach?  We can and should regularly share our experience with God (His goodness and faithfulness to us) with those around us.  We can and should share what we believe about the Living God. Our story and our faith will offer encouragement, hope, and “life”to those around us each and every day.

“but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;” 1 Peter 3:15

“He then answered,  “One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” John 9:25

One thought on “Share/Speak”

  1. Telling stories work in leadership, especially in missionary for sure. Great leaders inspire others by telling stories. Telling stories will invite people’s curiosity and can impact change.

    People connect with us at the emotional level better through stories. Sharing stories will make an impact!
