1 Corinthians 3:5-15–The ongoing work of the local church is important to God. As individual believers in the body of Christ it is important that we do not neglect our calling. It also matters where we serve, why we serve, and how we serve.
Jeremiah 29:1-14. God instructs the people in exile to settle in–build homes and raise families. They are to seek the peace and prosperity of the city of their captivity. It’s all part of God’s plan. Deliverance will come in God’s time.
