Winter Weather and Living Missionally
So I am now officially tired of the snow. Besides the fact that it has had a huge impact on sales at our local RadioShack where I am the store manager, it has kept us inside for nearly a week. Yesterday I went out and shoveled ours and our neighbor's sidewalk of about 3 feet of snow drift. That got me thinking about something. What does missional life look like during winter storms like we've had the last few days?
Here are a few ideas:
1. When you go out to shovel your driveway, walkway, or porch go ahead and shovel your neighbors as well. Don't seek any recognition, but be ready to give a reason for why you are doing it; to show Christ's love.
2. Invite your neighbors over and all of you share a meal together. Cooking a pot of chili together is a inexpensive meal that will feed a lot of people.
3. If you make soup or chili take a bowl to a neighbor who might be a shut in or unable to get outside during the winter weather.
4. If you have a vehicle that allows you to get out in the weather and you go to the grocery store, take the opportunity to do some grocery shopping for your neighbors as well.
What are some ideas of ways we can live out Christ's love missionally during the winter?
