To you it’s garbage, to God it’s recycling


Romans 5:3-5: And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.


Discuss / describe the trash in your life that you need to give God. To go deeper, ask a mentor or close friend to reveal to you the trash in your life that you don’t see.


Lord, help me understand that you can make something positive come out of the garbage in my life. Please recycle my life — build my character from my junk to Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.
