I know that in life and in our churches there can be a lot of “stirring up” that happens.
Sometimes this stirring is needed to bring things that have settled to the bottom back up to the top. And anything that needs to be scooped off the top as it surfaces can be dealt with.
Sometimes the stirring can be positive and sometimes the stirring can be negative. And sometimes it may seem to be negative at the beginning…but have positive results.
Hebrews tells us that our stirring should result in love and good works. We need to encourage one another – stir each other up – to love more abundantly and to serve others in greater works of goodness.
Lord, begin with me! Stir me up to love and good works!!
