After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. 2And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house.

Observation: God, there is no striving or manipulation happening here! Either You have prepared their heart to hear Your message of salvation through me or You haven’t. And when I find the person of peace You have put before me, hang out with them. You have given me the opportunity to share my life and my Jesus story with them.
Action: I have a new person of peace in my neighborhood. Lord, I commit to praying for him and his family and will both show and tell my story of salvation through Christ and Your unconditional love.
