Here are my reflections and comments from today’s scripture from Our Daily Inspirations App.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, before I read or comment on God’s word, I pray that He prepares my heart to receive his guidance and ask that He uses me as his vessel to comment on His word. If you want to leave comments or feedback, you can email email@example.com. All my accomplishments, money, and material possessions I own and enjoy come from God. God bless you.
The scripture is from Deuteronomy 8:18: “But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is today.”
The devotion is titled Sharing His Treasures by Darla Noble. The author introduced this lesson by talking about a simple man, Pete. By the time he was sixteen, he figured out how to graft fruit trees together to make a different kind of apple. People complimented him and his wife on the produce they raised in their garden, the flower beds around the front lawn and the small orchard of Pete’s one-of-kind tress. He would say that this was just my gift from the Good Lord, His way of sharing His treasures with him. To sum up, everything on earth belongs to the Lord. He is the master and ruler of the universe. He shares His treasures and extends to us the privilege and honor of caring for them and enjoying the pleasure they can bring, because He loves us. Be a good borrower and take care of the things God trusts you to manage for Him so you can receive the blessings He wants to give you for a job well done.
Reflections, Questions, and Challenges for Us: What has God loaned to you that you that you are not sharing back with Him? What will you do to change that?
Here is my response, yours may be different: One thing God has loaned to me is my material wealth. I plan to seek God’s guidance to help me get our finances in order so I can share back to Him what is truly His.
A Personal Prayer for us: Heavenly Lord, thank you for the material blessings you provide to us every day. Please help us remember these things are Yours. Help us to honor You in the way we care for them. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
