Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18

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.

Worship Over Rituals

Hosea 6 6

Verse of the Day:  Hosea 6:6

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

God is more pleased with mercy, love and compassion towards all people rather than formalities. More than sacrifices God wants you to know Him on a personal level. He wants you to trust in Him, submit to His will and be obedient to His laws. God wants you to worship in spirit and in truth rather than go through the motion of ceremonies. Rituals and sacrifices have their place in organized religion but without your heart truly in it for the right reasons they are meaningless.

Memorial Day

John 15 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

 

As we celebrate and enjoy our freedom this Memorial Day let’s take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday as we remember those who died in active military service.  Let’s honor these heroes by praying for each other and our country.

Honor Her      

Proverbs 31 31.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:31

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

 

Mothers deserve to be appreciated for all they do for their families.  Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.
