No matter what your life looks like, you probably juggle several different roles—friend, mom, wife, leader, volunteer, employee, boss, and everything in between. As the panelists suggested, we can model Jesus' intentionality in how we handle our various responsibilities. Pick one relationship you'd like to be intentional with this week and take a practical step toward spending time with that person.
