I want to be fruitful today.

It’s easy to over complicate things.  Over complicating things makes us less likely to do them. Much has been taught in the Christian arena about bearing fruit.  But it’s really quite simple. If you want to be fruitful today, keep your eyes and ears open for a pressing need. And then do something to meet that need. Engage in a good deed.

The need may be big.  The need may be small.  The need may be that of a co-worker, a family member, a child, a neighbor, or even a stranger.

The deed may be big.  The deed may be small.  The deed may be for a co-worker, a family member, a child, a neighbor, or even a stranger.

Needs are everywhere.  If we simply take our eyes off ourselves and look at the faces around us, we will see a need.  And therein lies our opportunity! It may be as simple as speaking a good word to an anxious heart.  It may be as messy as stepping into a crisis.  The more pressing the need, the greater the opportunity!

When you see the opportunity, ENGAGE!

Our people must also learn to engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs, so that they will not be unfruitful. Titus 3:14
