Christmas HOPE - Day 10
1 Peter 5:2 - "Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God."
For some people Christmas is a tough season because loved ones have passed on. During our lives many of these people have watched over us. They've "shepherded" us. As a believer, you too are a shepherd of a flock; whether it's your family, church group, or even employees - large or small groups of people - you were called to be a shepherd as a believer.
This Christmas think about how you might bring hope to someone in your flock. Maybe it's a simple pat on the back or telling them "great job", help love others and offer hope to them by caring for that which God has entrusted to you, under your care."
