Mondays with Mary – September 21, 2020: Reframing

Do you put people in a negative frame? Maybe it’s a lazy frame or a rebellious frame. Ask God to help you see them as He sees them. It will help you to “re-frame” them.

Monday’s w Mary 8-31-2020 – Are You An Extravagant Person?

Read Mark 14:1-10 this week. It focuses on a woman who poured a very expensive bottle of perfume on Jesus’ head. Many thought she was ‘wasting’ perfume and being extravagant and they rebuked her harshly. But, Jesus told them to leave her alone. “She has done a beautiful thing to me.”

How do you demonstrate your love to Jesus? Do you pour out your time? Do you pour out money for the work of Jesus?

Pour out your complaints to the Lord.

Philippians 2:14-16  Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
