Pastor Titus Benton casted vision for us this week about what it may look like for us to love our neighbors in West Houston. He encouraged us that faithful servants are those who know what they have, know it isn't theirs, and pour it out for the good of others. Titus suggested that in order to be faithful servants, we need to be ready to relationally invest and seek diversity.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
Begin your reflection time by reading 1 Timothy 6:17-19.
This week Titus challenged us to love our neighbors in two key ways: relational investment and seeking true diversity. As you continue your contemplation, ask yourself honestly who am I relationally investing in? Am I relationally investing in the "least of these" that Jesus describes?
Titus challenged us that our call is not merely to consume the culture of others, but to contribute. How are you seeking out others who are unlike you, not merely to consume but to contribute? What steps might you take in the coming weeks to grow in this?
As you finish your contemplation read 1 Timothy 6:17-19 a second time. Pray that God would make it so in your life and in our community on the West side.
