How was your day?

Instead of just asking someone how his/her day was, try some of these questions for more conversation starters…

Click here for the article 

Did you help anyone? What made you laugh? Tell me something you know today that you didn’t know yesterday.

And ask questions that require more than yes/no answers. Many of these questions are perfect for all conversations with all ages of people. Start up a conversation with a total stranger and see where those talks lead.

Find your resonate tribe

Resonance, in physics, explains the sense we have when we meet our people. Resonance occurs when an object’s natural vibration frequency responds to an external stimulus of the same frequency. If we know an object’s natural rate of vibration, we can make it vibrate without touching it. We are feeling something or experiencing something in common with people. This is connection.

We resonate with our people at the same frequency when we share the same view through the same lens and we value the same things. Amos and God were in sync with one another when God did the punishing and Amos told Israel it was Him doing it. Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? (Amos 3:3).

Connection comes not from finding people who view the world from a right-wrong perspective. True connection comes from finding natural kinships within diverse groups or tribes.

Success is often determined by being on the right bus with the right people who have a like passion and purpose. Who is in your tribe? With whom have you connected? Who shares your same passion and purpose? With whom have you resonated?

Connect with your people.

#communitymatters

We are designed and instructed to live in community with others. God’s Word encourages and urges us to be compassionate and kind. We must forgive and love. We can’t do that unless we live in community and interact with others. All of our responsibilities and duties involve other people. We must live in community to display Jesus’ character to others.

It doesn’t take much to live in community with others. We only need simple and kind words spoken plainly to share and point others to Jesus. The way we live our lives and go about our daily responsibilities reveals the Gospel and who and what drives us. We can live like Jesus as we help others along on their journey of faith.

Just live and love life and invite others to join you.

Who is in your world?

Ask yourself: Who is in your world? Who is in your circle? Who has God brought into your life?

We can read and study for ourselves, but self study involves more than only ourselves in mind. God wants us to be a part of changing the lives of those around us. How are we reading and studying for ourselves? What is God teaching us individually? What does God want us to do to teach others and encourage others in their walks with Him?

Our circles do not have to be big. Often the smaller the circle, the more impact we can have. Our interactions may be more intimate and trusting when our circles and friendships are smaller and closer. Sometimes the smallest acts have the greatest impact as well. A word of encouragement or a simple act of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s day and in their life.

Look for those around you. Look for ways to change the lives of those around you. Be kind. Be compassionate. Make a difference.
