“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” – Colossians 2:6-7

It’s so easy to focus on the negative… it’s where our minds naturally go with ministry and everything else. “What’s wrong? What can we change? What needs improvement?” Those are important questions, but also consider this important question: “What can we celebrate?”

Try opening your next small group or ministry team meeting with this question: “What can we celebrate?” You might be amazed by all God is doing, even in the midst of difficult outward circumstances.
