CORE – Neighbor-hood

Categories: One Step Closer

One Step Closer Every Day

Spend a few minutes every day, reading, meditating and praying with God so that you can take one step closer to Jesus every day.


Sunday – Matthew 25:1-13 – What does it mean that Jesus is asking us to be prepared to serve? What does it look like for you to be prepared? Have you ever been caught unprepared?

Monday – Hosea 10:1-15 ‐ Hosea talks about reaping what you sow. How have you experienced this in your life? How can you prepare now to reap later?

Tuesday – Matthew 25:14‐30 – What are the gifts God has given you and how do you invest them? How would it change if you believed that when you invest in God there is always a positive return?

Wednesday – Ecclesiastes 11:1-10 – Solomon writes about investing what you have in God’s future and in others. What do you need to begin investing to bless God and bless others?

Thursday – Matthew 25:31‐46 – Who are you in this story? Who are those you are being asked to serve? Are any of them people you’d rather avoid?

Friday – Zechariah 7:1-14 – God’s priority is on justice and mercy, not on religious pretense and ceremony. In what ways are you participating in bringing justice and mercy today?

Saturday – Matthew 7:1-29 – What is Jesus saying to you about serving through this portion of the Sermon on the Mount, especially verse 12, the Golden Rule?
