Building a Strong Community and Society
At Lima First Assembly of God, we believe in the power of influence. Our faith-based community is committed to making a positive impact within our sphere of influence, and we encourage everyone to reflect on five important questions that can help us understand and maximize our reach.
1. What Is My Sphere of Influence?
Understanding the extent of your sphere of influence is essential in order to have a clear understanding of the impact you can make. Your sphere of influence encompasses the people, communities, and networks that you come into contact with on a regular basis. It includes your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and others who are directly or indirectly influenced by your thoughts, actions, and beliefs.
2. How Am I Using My Sphere of Influence?
Reflecting on how you are currently using your sphere of influence can help you gauge the effectiveness of your actions and identify areas for improvement. Are you leveraging your influence to positively impact others? Are you supporting and encouraging those around you? Are you using your platform to spread positivity and promote a sense of community and unity?
3. What Positive Changes Can I Make?
Once you have assessed your current use of influence, it's important to identify areas where you can make positive changes. This could involve actively seeking opportunities to mentor or guide others, engaging in community service, or becoming an advocate for important causes. By making intentional efforts to uplift and empower those within your sphere of influence, you can contribute to positive change within your community and society as a whole.
4. How Can I Expand My Sphere of Influence?
Expanding your sphere of influence allows you to reach a wider audience and have a greater impact. Consider ways in which you can connect with new communities, build relationships with individuals who hold different perspectives, or participate in relevant social and professional networks. By broadening your reach, you can bring diverse perspectives together and create a more inclusive and harmonious society.
5. How Can I Lead by Example?
Leadership is an integral aspect of influencing others. To effectively lead by example, you must strive to embody the values and principles you hold dear. This involves consistently demonstrating integrity, empathy, respect, and kindness in all your interactions. By doing so, you inspire and motivate others to follow your lead and positively impact their own spheres of influence.
By pondering these five questions and taking intentional actions, you can actively shape and improve your sphere of influence. At Lima First Assembly of God, we are committed to providing guidance, resources, and support to help you navigate this journey of influence and make a difference in our community and society.
