“Centering every day with Christian focus”

Football teams usually map out the first few offensive and defensive plays of every game. Why should Christians be any different when planning out their days? Our first “plays” of the day can include Open Up (Devotional), Express Yourself (Music), Focused Attention Time (Prayer), Learn & Grow (Study) and Show Love (Action)!

LOVE! (ACTION)

  • “Alive Now” daily devotional itemMobius strip
  • Identify one good “work” for today – letter written; donation made; effort @ Interfaith Hospitality Network, Habitat for Humanity, local food kitchen or ???
  • NOTE: the mobius band is here as something of a symbol of one of my favorite phrases: “altruistic egoism.”  When you give, you get so much in return (you are one side of the band, others are on the other side and you share the love!)

Colossians 3:14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. … 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.
