“What you value you will steward well and what you steward well you will multiply. What you multiply you have authority over.”
It’s true. We are willing to fight for the things in our lives that we value the most. We make compromises and sacrifices in order to protect those things, uphold them, and steward them well. Whether it’s a dream to finish school or a desire to have a child, a hope of retirement or a business plan yet to commence, there are dreams that live and breathe in the recesses of our hearts.
This weekend guest speaker Ken Janke encouraged us to value, celebrate, and pursue one another’s dreams. He challenged us not only to articulate and acknowledge our own gifts and abilities for the Kingdom, but to selflessly discover the dreams of others.
As Ken walked the streets of New Haven, Connecticut he learned 3 things.
- Everyone has a dream.
- People abort their dreams out of fear, insecurity, and feeling along.
- We can only begin building our dreams when we come to the end of ourselves and rely on each other.
This week, let’s pray for Plexpod Westport Commons and the dreamers who are moving in, signing leases and daring to begin.
Pray for the wells of innovation to be uncapped.
- “Innovation happens when we collaborate with people who have a different perspective and posture than we do.”
- Holy Spirit, we ask that you would help us build friendships and partnerships with others in the city who desire to “bring home and make beautiful”.
Pray that the love of Navah members and staff would contribute to and help cultivate a culture of Christ-like affection and honor.
