A Summer to Remember

Hooray! Spring is here, winter is gone, and summer is on the way! This is always an exciting time. The trees are leaving out, the flowers are blooming, and the birds are singing. The possibilities seem endless, and hope springs eternal. This summer will be full of church camps, Vacation Bible Schools, mission trips and all sorts of fun activities. So the question is, what will we do with the upcoming summer?

Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” When we are looking at the summer, the first thing we should do is ask God, “What do you want me to do with the months ahead?” We are to pray that God will guide our steps to those who are lost and to opportunities for service. In seeking God’s kingdom, we are making ourselves available to be used where He sees fit.

You may be thinking, “Bentley, I am too old for church camp and too tired for VBS.” But the truth is, you may be more useful than you think. God can do great things with a willing spirit and a loving heart. Often we miss great opportunities and blessings because we won’t say yes to wonderful possibilities.

It is fun to sow into the lives of others no matter if they are preschoolers or homebound. The opportunities are endless if we are looking for them. You may not be able to handle the heat of church camp or the demands of VBS recreation, but you can pray for the children and the workers involved in these life-changing activities. You can bake cookies, send notes of encouragement, and sit and talk to a child about the important things in his or her life. It may be time to meet that neighbor who moved in six months ago or give a single-mom a break by taking her son fishing. The warmer weather and longer days provide so many possibilities, so let’s begin our summer by asking God what He would like to see in the summer of ’23. If we seek His will first, we can rest assured this will be a summer to remember.

Looking forward to the days ahead,

Bentley Hill
