Bulletin Digest alternativeBible Passage: Hebrews 13:16

If you’re like me, you forget things. At various times, I forget where my shoes, my wallet, my baseball cap and my car keys are. What kind of things do you forget? Can you add to this list? I’ve heard the first step in correcting any problem is identifying the problem. That’s when it can be cured. The little material things I mentioned are not very important.

Well, car keys could be important if you have to go somewhere. A wallet is important if we want to pay for something. A baseball cap is important if we’ve just had a bad haircut and yes, shoes are important if we want to walk into a store. But really, those things don’t compare to what God says we should not forget in Hebrews 13:16.

Through the writer of Hebrews, God says, “Don’t forget to do good. Don’t forget to share with others. These sacrifices make me happy.” Of course, that’s my paraphrase, but you get the point. Doing good can take on many different appearances, but doing good must be part of your life. This can be done toward a spouse, a co-worker, another family member, a person who is looked down upon by society. Jesus even said when we do good for one of the least in society, we’ve done good to Jesus too. The same goes with sharing. A child might think of the word “share” and immediately think “toys.” Adults might think, “money” or “time.”

Consumption isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, so sharing money may go a long way in helping others. In stark contrast to consumption, time is extremely important so sharing that commodity can change a life and groups of people, whether those are small groups or entire churches, giving their time collectively, can change the world. Just something to think about as you tackle this week. Have any thoughts on this topic? Please share away.
