Popular – Day 3

Popular - Using Your Influence For The Good Of Others

As we head into day 3 of the next devotional related to dads and the one that came up is an interesting one as it is one on the topic of being popular and using that influence for the good of others. It was also interesting because even though I searched for “dad” it invites middle school students to join the devotional. I am excited to see how this devotional will play into our series of devotionals for dad and how God will choose to use it through me to help us be the dads He purposed and created and planned for us to be! Even as dads we need encouragement to recognize the influence we have. As dads, we need to also use it for the good of others! Popular is a 15-day devotional! Popular comes to us from a group name reThink Group.

Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:

‘The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” ‘

Mark 12:31

God’s Word is so powerful as we consider what to do today. It tells us how important it is to love and be loved! God loves us so much that He sent Jesus! We are to love because God first loved us! And as we are filled with God’s love we should overflow in love to the people God brings into our lives! As we do that we will get to accomplish the second which is to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Let’s be the dads who are filled to overflowing with love! Let’s be the dads who when our tanks are running low invite God into the situation and into our hearts so that we can get refilled by being in His presence and then be able to overflow love into the world around us! Let’s be the dads who make sure we prioritize properly pouring love into the lives of our wives, the lives of our kids, and then the world around us!
