Yesterday, I shared the difference between those who build the Kingdom of God and those who make personal empires. Those who build God’s Kingdom discover significance and value; the others don’t.  

I ended the message yesterday with several challenges, which some of you took me up on. In case you didn’t, here is a new one for today.  

Pay for the order behind you in some drive-thru service.  

Clean up the trash around your neighborhood, at least a couple of houses down from yours. 

Buy some cheap umbrellas, and give one away to someone in need the next time it rains.  

Name two or three people who you think are significant. A) They must be alive, and B) You cannot know them. Now answer this question: Why are they significant? Is it money, power, influence, attitude, or entrepreneurial spirit?  

The Bible says in Matthew 22:37-39 - 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (NLT

Loving God and loving others are hallmarks of significance.  

How do you love God? (Go ahead and answer that; I’ll wait.) How do you love others? Are we guilty of doing the first and ignoring the latter? 

Dear Jesus, help me to love You and someone else today. AMEN.
