We live in a season that – at times – seems more divisive than ever before. There are numerous contributing factors, but it’s become far more acceptable nowadays to cut people down, dehumanize them, and ridicule them into utter shame.
Of course, not everyone is this way; but it does seem like the voices that intend to harm and discredit shout louder than anyone else.
This is why it’s all the more important that we – the Faithbox Community – use our voices, our lives, and our abilities to Empower others! We may not be “everyone,” but there sure are a lot of us!
This month’s theme of Empowerment is about recognizing who is the Source and Foundation of our power, what (and who) we’ve been empowered for, and what’s the outcome of empowering others.
Here’s a hint: God is the one Who empowers, and He empowers us so that we can empower others -- because when people are empowered they are able to step into the fullness of who God created them to be: dignified, secure, and loved.
There’s a lot riding on this month’s theme...though God could do this all by Himself, He has chosen to partner with us so we can be the difference and make an impact.
When we focus on the importance of Empowerment, it really can change our world!
