When Jesus heard this, he told them, "Healthy people don't need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners." Mark 2:17 (NLT)
ACTION PLAN: Make a list of family members that don't have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and start praying for them and, if possible, introduce Christ to them.
