Today's devotion is provided by The Reformed Church in America: Devotions for Short-Term Missions
In community, we need to pay attention not only to ourselves, but also to others—how they are doing and what they are feeling. This week, look out for others who are struggling and take time to encourage, build up, and pray for them.
- How can the community we find ourselves in build us up? How can it tear us down?
- How do you think James 3 fits into the idea of community? How does this affect the way we act on this trip?
- Is there someone on this trip (or in your circle) that feels like a burden to you (someone that bothers you)? What does it look like to treat this person with respect and love?
- Who do you need to encourage this week?
