The calendar in my kitchen still says May. That must be why the beginning of the month slipped right by me.
We’re in the process of finishing our basement and between that and my daughter’s birthday, I completely forgot about June’s dinner discussions. So, here they are, just a bit late. I hope your dinnertime conversations are lively and your discussions thought-provoking this month.
Because summertime is often the season for travel, this month’s Dinner Discussions focus on travel. Based around Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age,” this month’s dinner discussions talk about going places and sharing the good news of Jesus.
Jesus set the example for us. He traveled from place to place, bringing the good news that He was the long-awaited Messiah. Then, He sent His disciples out to share the good news after He returned to heaven. Jesus wants us to share the good news about Him with others. He tells us to “go.” That may mean we go to our neighbor or it may mean we go to Africa. But for all of us, it means go and share.
Use your dinner discussions this month to reminisce about family vacations, to learn the places that others in your family want to go and to talk about how no matter where we go there are opportunities to share Jesus with others. So, get talking around the table, then get moving to go and share Jesus.
