Five Habits we embrace to help us grow:

– Pray seeking God’s guidance and for the welfare of others
– See those around us
– Step towards those around us
– Include those around us in experiencing the goodness of God
Check out the 30-Day Focus banner for the 3 Actions that support the habits.
This Sunday we get to see Jesus in one of the most notable conversations he has with anyone. Found in John 4:1-26, Jesus reveals things about himself and God that are remarkable.
But, the most notable thing about the conversation is that it happens at all.
Jesus goes against the tide of relationships by stepping towards this person. He sees what no one else could have seen about her.
The tide of normal relationships is almost always against truly connecting with others. Even at church. Even at home. Especially at work.
Good things happen when people really connect.
Jesus took the first step.
He’ll teach us how – this Sunday.
