What helps you get through trying times?

In the church community, we find ourselves using the term “storm” to describe troubling or trying times.   Many have heard it said that you’re either: 1) preparing for a storm, 2) in a the midst of a storm or 3) just on the other side of a storm.  At any rate, storms are a part of life that we must all deal with. The question is “how”? This week’s BeTheSohrs focus is “what helps you get through trying times?”  What’s your secret to calming a storm? It’s time, our time, to do what we Christians do best…share your experiences of coping with the storms of life. #BeTheSohrs

Inspiring Bible Character

 The Bible is filled with so many characters. Many times we usually think of the major stories that we grew up hearing, but what about the other characters? Those not so well known characters that people who are new to the Bible don’t know.

Today’s BeTheSohrs focus is on Bible characters who inspire you. Tell us about a Bible character that gives you inspiration. It’s time, your time, to do what we, Christians, do best. #BeTheSohrs.

Let’s show the world the character from scripture that inspires us.

What ways do you show love to the ones around you?

At the very core of being a Christian, exists the power of love. There is one thing that all Christians can agree upon and that’s the importance of this 4 letter word, l-o-v-e. We’ve found and you’ve experienced this word in many different ways. The world needs to know what it looks like. This week’s BeTheSohrs topic is “What ways do you show love to the ones around you?”

Here are a few actions and questions to get your thoughts stirring as your share:
* How often do you show love to those around you?
* In what ways do you give to your community?
* How has showing love to others affected you?
* In what ways do you show love to those that are around you?
* Give us a love expression.
* Love selfie. Yes, like being on the “kiss” cam at a baseball game.
* What is your love language? And why?

We can’t wait to hear (and see) what you have to share.

How Would You Describe Today’s Message?

Most Christians attend some type of worship service either Saturday or Sunday.  During these services a message is delivered. Some churches call it a sermon, others call it teachings or talks and there are those who reference it as a message. No matter what it’s called they give instruction, inspiration, comfort and hope.  Hopefully, this weekend you are amongst the millions who attend a worship service and will hear a great message. Our “BeTheSohrs” topic this week is “How would you describe today’s message?” Here are a few questions along those lines to help you share in this week’s “#BeTheSohrs” campaign:

  • What’s one word to describe the message you heard today?
  • What is today’s message theme?
  • What’s the one thing you loved about the message?
  • Share your message notes with us.
  • Tell us a little about the message.

No matter what you do, say or share, just do it.  It will literally inspire the world, your world.

It’s your time, our time to do what we, Christians, do best.  #BeTheSohrs!

Compliment a Stranger Today

The reason I like being around Christians is because I leave feeling refreshed.  They put wind in my sails.  Have you ever had anyone say something to you that lifted your spirits and sent you soaring?

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” – ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This week, we are doing this very thing for others.  Can you find a stranger or someone you just met and find a way to encourage them.  Our “BeTheSohrs” focus is “compliment a stranger today!”  Being that breath of fresh air for others is what we, Christians, do and we do it well.  It’s time your time to BeTheSohrs!

Make Spending Time With God a Priority

If you haven’t noticed priorities are important.  It’s said that “whatever gets scheduled gets done.”  What this is also saying is that which doesn’t get scheduled does not get done.  Could prayer or spending time with God fall into this category?  Sure it does, even with the best of intentions.  Fortunately for you this week’s “BeTheSohrs” focus is “make spending time with God a priority.”  You can join our campaign by simply liking our social media posts.  You can share your thoughts, ideas and links.  You can share images.  Regardless of how you’d like to participate, the time to do so is now.  Let’s do what we, Christians, do best.  Let’s #BeTheSohrs!

Best School Year Ever

You might not realize this, but summer doesn’t end (at least in the U.S.A.) until September 22. The season doesn’t change for more than a month, but it feels like we’re moving into another season. With everyone focused on their kids returning back to school, it feels like we’ve entered a new season with many changes and new activities. As our children return to school, let’s think of ways we can make this school year the best ever. This week’s “BeTheSohrs” focus is “making this school year the best year ever for our kids.” What ideas do you have for making the 2021/22 school year the best year ever? Let’s do what we, Christians, do best. #BeTheSohrs

What is Important to Someone Else?

There is no better way to make a world of difference than to place someone else’s needs before your own.  What have you done for another lately?  How have you made your “neighbors” feel important.  Today’s #BeTheSohrs topic is “Focus on what is important to someone else.”  Share with us and your world how you made the importance of another person your priority.  This is what we as Christians do.

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life [motives, priorities, ambitions] for one’s friends.” – John 15:13

Let’s do this now…let’s do this together!  #BeTheSohrs

A Time When Your Prayer Was Answered

 All of us can think of a time where we desperately needed an answered prayer. Well, there are many believers out there waiting for their prayers to be answered. How comforting would it be for Christians everywhere to share a time when a prayer was answered? How encouraging would that be to those who are waiting on theirs. Show your support, have some compassion, and give your experience by sharing one of times when your prayer was answered. Praying is what we, Christians do. #TheSohrs

It’s your time, our time to do what we, Christians, do best. #BeTheSohrs!

How Are You Generous?

Some people are generous by nature.  They have the gift of giving, but what about the rest of us?  How can we be like the chosen few? How can we become more generous?Generosity first starts in the heart.  If you have a heart that desires to give, the next step is to get a plan for giving. In order to help others, let’s share ways that we practice generosity.  Today’s #BeTheSohrs topic is “How Are You Generous?”

Here’s your chance to influence others and the world.

  • In what ways are you generous?
  • What do you do for others?
  • How does your family give?
  • Share a recent random act of kindness.
  • Where have you volunteered to give of yourself?

Your participation in the BeTheSohrs initiative is greatly appreciated.  Remember, what you get out of it is a direct reflection of what you put into it.  Help us show the world what Christians do.
