When It's Time to Say Goodbye


Although painful, Paul's goodbyes held elements of hope and encouragement.

Paul's missionary journeys often found him having to say goodbye to dear friends who shared a common faith in Christ and with whom he had partnered in ministry. While heart-rending, these goodbyes held an element of hope and encouragement as together they looked to the God who bound them together. With whom are you sharing the journey of leading like Jesus? How can you strengthen them to move forward, even if you have to say goodbye?

"Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified" (Acts 20:32).

Prayer: Jesus, You are our sufficiency, our hope and encouragement. Thank You for friends who share the journey, and for the mutual encouragement we offer one another. Strengthen my fellow servant leaders today, I ask in Your name, Amen.
