The below excerpt is from my book The New You: A Guide to Better Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Wellness.
Maybe you have never thought much about this, but God has you living where you are for a reason. He wants you to impact your city or town in a way only you can. Consider this Bible verse: “Work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you….Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare” (Ker. 29:7).
You are called to engage the area you call home. Bless your city or town by showing the people who live there the love of Jesus in action. Here are a few practical ways you can start serving your city or town:
- get involved with your church’s community outreach ministries
- serve at a local homeless shelter
- serve at a pregnancy crisis center
- sign up to build houses with Habitat for Humanity
- tutor children in low-income areas
- say thank you to your local police officers and firefighters
– Nelson Searcy and Jennifer Dykes Henson
The above excerpt is from p. 114-115 of The New You: A Guide to Better Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Wellness.
