Kingdom Assignment 1 is a contemporary reenactment of the New Testament Parable of the Talents, Matthew 25:14-30. Individuals are entrusted with a measure or "talent" of money with instructions to invest and multiply it creatively on behalf of the Master and to give an account of the results in 90 days.
Kingdom Assignment 2 is built around the New Testament encounter between Jesus and the Rich Young Ruler, Mark 10:17-29. The Rich Young Ruler was challenged to sell his possessions, give the proceeds to the poor and come follow after Jesus. In a similar spirit, KA participants are asked to sell a personal item of value or "treasure" within 90 days; with the intent of giving the combined proceeds to a defined project or personal ministry benefiting the poor in Jesus' name.
Kingdom Assignment 3 is a call to give of your "time" to an individual in need. It is constructed around the New Testament Parable of the Sheep and the Goats, Matthew 25: 31-46 where Jesus declares to his disciples "whatever you have done to the least of these, you have done it unto me". Participants are commissioned to give of themselves to one person they consider to be among "the least of these" for 90 concentrated minutes of time and return in 90 days with an account of their experience.
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
Scripture reminds us to be thankful for those who have been such a blessing in our lives.
During this Thanksgiving we are grateful to God for Him bringing us the blessing of you. May God richly bless your family during these Holydays!
