Be a Point of Light

1000 Points of Light is an intentional initiative created to help us shift our perspective and open our eyes to the everyday opportunities that God sets before each and every one us.
 
Between May and September, our hope is to make 1000 intentional points of light in our community and around the world. 
 
A point of light is any action that shares the love of Jesus by encouraging, supporting, praying, loving, or giving to someone in need that day.
 
So whether you, encourage a stranger, help your neighbor, support a co-worker, pray for a family member or lead someone in making a life changing decision to follow Jesus Christ, do it with intentionality and purpose, knowing that you are being a light in the darkness. 
 
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. 
John 1:5 
  • Actions that encourages, supports or shares the love of Jesus.

While in Toronto, there was a man with a beanie hat sitting on the street with broken teeth asking for a toonie. I asked with courgage, “What for?” He said, “I need a coffee.” I said, “How about I get you some coffee?” He said, “Ok, bring me a coffee with 3 tablespoons of sugar and top it up with cream.” I came back and he was asking a toonie from other people. I gave him the coffee and literally took it bottoms up in one go.
