31 Days of Hope

Hope {Day 21} – How to Hand out Hope

Sometimes I look around me and wonder if Christians really could have an impact on this world anymore.  It can be discouraging at times to look around and see our friends, our family members, our country, our world drifting farther and farther away from the Truth revealed to us in God’s Word.  BUT we don’t have to lose hope!

 

What triggered my thinking about this was just two short verses in Luke yesterday.  Luke 13:20-21says:

Again [Jesus] asked, “What shall I compare the kingdom of God to?  It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough.” 

This world may be big, but the kingdom of God is POWERFUL!  Just like yeast seems so small and insignificant to the “large amount of flour” when making bread, anyone whose forgotten it in something knows that it makes ALL the difference. 

 

This verse says that the kingdom of God is like that yeast… it may seem insignificant at first but you just wait…. and wait…. and wait… and eventually, you’ll see an impact…in ALL the dough.

 

As God’s kingdom permeates this world, it can’t help but spread throughout the whole dough.  We don’t have to LOSE HOPE when we look around and see such pain and suffering in the world.  Rather, let’s HAND OUT hope and let it impact the entire world!

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Bekah. God’s reminder of hope in your messages each day are always a breath of fresh air/pie in the face, depending on what is needed that day.
