If You See Something, Say Something
Have you ever noticed that there is a national day for everything? In January alone, there is national science fiction day, spaghetti day, bobblehead day, and fig newton day (unfortunately that day has sadly passed). Do you know what national day September 25th is? September 25th, according to Homeland Security, is National Awareness Day. If you have spent any time at the airport, you have heard the slogan that is attached to this day. It goes like this, “If you see something, say something.” This catchy phrase is to not only develop a more heightened awareness of your surroundings at the airport but also, if something doesn’t seem right to you, don’t keep it to yourself. Tell somebody about it. Well, Pastor Toph helped us see that National Awareness Day shouldn’t just be one day of the year. In the Body of Christ, we take out cues from the Apostle Paul, who had a heightened awareness of the Lord’s work in the lives of the believers. It caused thanksgiving to abound as he considered evidences of grace that flourished in the church. Paul was not content, though, with just thanksgiving to God. He wanted others to hear him give thanks to God for his work in their lives. Pastor Toph encouraged us to be on the lookout for pieces of evidence of grace in one another’s lives and thank God for his work in front of our brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes peeled this week, Jubilee. Ask the Father to make you aware of his work in your brothers’ and sisters’ lives. And when you see something, say something.
Thankful to our Father for his grace in your lives,
