It’s easy to be preoccupied with lists of things to do. We can get so caught up in the busyness of everyday responsibilities that we don’t recognize the presence of Jesus in our homes, our churches, our workplaces, the grocery store or the waiting room.
We must intentionally look for Jesus every day. We are called to greet others, engage in conversation and share the good news of Jesus’ love. When we acknowledge his presence in ourselves and others, we will be able to recognize and respond to opportunities for ministry.
