On Christmas day #brettfish challenged us to start doing what Jesus told us: to deny ourselves, take up the cross daily and follow him. One reader asked how they could do that in a practical way. So we asked Brett. Here’s what he said:

Start the day by praying for an opportunity to love practically. Look around you and identify someone who the world might see as ‘the least of these’ – find a creative way to Love them. Start by finding out their name and asking to hear their life story. Write a note of encouragement to someone lonely or alone. Identify a ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ moment, and do it. Do something you don’t particularly like [household chore?] so someone else doesn’t have to. Love well.
