We are ten days away from 10-10-10 on the calendar. Now, I don’t believe there is anything cosmically or spiritually abnormal or significant about that day over any other.
However, I think we have an opportunity to do something significant with that day.
Here’s my proposal:
- 10 dollars
- 10 minutes
- 10 people
10 Dollars. I challenge each of us to give $10 per member of your family to help those in need. This is over and above normal giving for that day. For some it may mean eating sandwiches at home instead of going out, but this would be a good opportunity to teach our children about sacrifice and need. If you give in the offering at Capital City Church, designate that portion to Convoy of Hope.. If you attend another church or non at all, find a reputable organization to give to. You can give online to Convoy as well. www.convoyofhope.org
10 Minutes. Spend an extra ten minutes reading the Bible. I recommend reading out of the book of Proverbs.
10 People. Find ten people and intentionally encourage them. This could be a phone call, an email, write a note, face to face encounter, an act of kindness, whatever.
Let’s take this opportunity and make a numerically unique day into a significant day in our circle of influence.
