The Daily Breath of God
Monday, August 26 2013
Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine. Proverbs 3:9,10When we were young it did not matter if its was about birthday's, Easter or Christmas because for us the exciting thing was the gifts we would receive and how wonderful those memories are. But the beauty of growing up in the grace of God that is in Jesus the Christ, is the joy we have learned in giving because we are in love and so thankful for the opportunity to give. Grace not only saves us from our old nature where we are quite self absorbed, but it gives us the freedom to express with what we have earned or what we can do with great joy and thanksgiving. Grace lets us live with open hands and heart toward our Lord and others. Our wealth is about what we have and it does not matter if it is ten dollars or a thousand, it is our wealth. The ability to earn it comes from the Lord and what a joy comes over us when we can give to the glory of God and the refreshment of others. On this new day may you enjoy the opportunities before you to honor the Lord with what is in your hand and the best part of everything you do. You will enjoy this freedom and it will refresh your journey. His grace that gives you this freedom will blow your hair back.
