What Do Others Need from Me?

Last night our small group did an interesting study.

We looked at Acts 16:11-40, the story of the roots of the Philippian church. The story recounts the conversion of three diverse characters: Lydia, a wealthy foreigner; a demon-posessed slave girl; and a Roman jailer.

Paul approached each person differently. He did what each needed to encounter Christ. I encourage you to read how he interacted with each individual.

At the end of the study, we were challenged to summarize our takeaway. I thought we came up with a pretty cool statement. We decided that when we meet someone we should always keep this question in mind:

What does this person need from me to see Jesus?

I wonder how my relationships and interactions would change if I always remembered that question.
