F=Fast from one meal today (Some people can not fast or should not because of low blood sugar – a suggestion would be to eat a light meal instead of fasting. A meal in which you leave the table a little hungry.)
E=Encourage a neighbor or co-worker
A=Admit that there have been times when you have been overly concerned about getting the credit you feel you deserve.
S=(Scripture) Philippians 2:3; Matt. 16:24; Proverbs 3:5-12
T=Thank God for a specific blessing He has given you
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3; New Living Translation)
Then Jesus spoke to his disciples. He said, “If anyone wants to follow me, he must say no to himself. He must pick up his cross and follow me. (Matt. 16:24; New International Reader’s Version)
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
a father’s delight is behind all this. (Proverbs 3:5-12; Message Bible)
