“Earn all you can, give all you can, save all you can” – John Wesley
Question for the day: “How well do we truly honor God with our resources?”
Thank You for the opportunities that You have given me to improve my life. You alone have provided a rich education, fruitful work environments, and unending resources for me to provide for my family. I understand that all these resources actually belong to You. And I pray today that You will forgive me for those times that I have let an attitude of greed overtake me. I pray that You will forgive me for putting my extravagant “wants” before the true “needs” of others. Mr. Wesley never said anything about spending all I can, but most often, that is where I find myself.
Teach me from this day forward, Lord, to be content with what I have. Rid me of my consumer mindset, and help me to honor You first with everything I have been given. Help me to remain committed to giving above my tithe, so that the needs of the world will be met. Create in me a heart filled with generosity and a charitable spirit.
And lead me to view money as You do: a powerful tool to be used in the advancement of the kingdom, and not my own comfort.
To You be all honor, glory and praise,
