How to be provocative people
Last weekend we launched our summer series, “Beyond Myself.” And we talked about becoming provocative people.
Mostly we think of provoking as negative. But the New Testament writer of the book of Hebrews calls us to provoke one another to love and good deeds. To spur one another on. To “stir up goodness” as we called it. In other words, the church is intended to be full of provocative people! (Hebrews 10:24)
Here’s a simple way you can do that today:
- Tell a neighbor, or friend, or co-worker that your church is hosting a food drive this month
- Ask them if they’d like to participate
- Give them a bag (optional)
- Tell them when you’ll pick up the bag(s)
- Stop by the grocery store yourself and grab a bag full
- Bring the bag(s) to Seneca Creek this weekend
- Congratulations! You’ve just provoked someone to goodness.
If you have other ideas on how to live beyond yourself and stir up goodness, please add them to the comment section below. Thanks!
P.S. See you this weekend as we learn how to live beyond ourselves in a “Judgment-Free Zone.”
