Verse of the Day: 1 Timothy 6:18
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need. Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Check on the elderly and sick, feed the hungry, give to the poor and do what you can to help a hurting world know God. These kinds of things make a real difference and these are the things that enrich your life. Give, serve, love, these are the sacrifices that please God.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 11:24
One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
When it comes to our finances God’s way differs from man’s way. The worldly way of thinking when it comes to money is to make it, save it and keep it. But we all know you can’t take it with you. God’s way is to tithe, be generous to God’s work and give liberally to the poor. Everything we have comes from God and we’re merely managers of it. The more you give, the more God gives to you and you become richer in wealth and more blessed by God. True wealth is measured by what’s in your heart not by what’s in your wallet.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 9:18
But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
As we begin to immerse ourselves in the Christmas season let’s not forget those in need. There are so many ways we can help the poor and needy. Ask God to lead you in finding a way to help those in need this holiday season and throughout the year. Let God work through you as you donate your time, money, food or services. A little goes a long way and gives so much hope to many.
