Are you a person who looks for common ground with others or instead finds themselves being contrary?
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
1 Corinthians 9:22 I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.
Read - 1 Corinthians 9-10
There is so much at stake for us to live out our faith in an others-focused way. This is why Paul encourages us to seek Common Ground…to give of ourselves in ways to develop bridges rather than wedges in our lives.
Lord, I will seek Common Ground with others especially those outside of faith in Christ.
The cloud that guided the Israelites (mentioned at chapter 10) is a great visual of the Holy Spirit of God. Just like that cloud, we are blessed to have a Holy God that allows us to follow Him. In this follower-ship we are blessed to find safety and direction…to Know, Love and Obediently Serve the One we follow.
