13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13 – 16)
Today is dedicated to reviewing what we have learned over the past three days. We study God’s word for transformation not just for information. Spend your 15 minutes today reflecting on the Bible study over the last three days. Remember that our theme this year is A World in Need. Think about what you have learned about responding to a world in need, and if you have missed any of the days, you can catch up.
As you perform your review, please keep in mind the example set for us by Jesus. He loved the world. Matthew 9:36 tells us that “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them”.
Please consider the question below and ask God to help you to apply the lessons from His word to your life.
How can you strengthen your love for those in the world without loving the world?
