JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Daniel 12:2 and 3.
“Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”
As the light of the stars breaks the darkness of the night, so our witness for Jesus can break the darkness of doubt, despair, or deceit as we present Him as the way, the truth, and the life.
Each day is an opportunity to look for connections with people who need God’s saving grace, and then to share the reason for our hope in Christ.
Shining the light of God’s love in our sphere of influence is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
