Proverbs 3:9

VERSE:
   Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops…
    -- Proverbs 3:9
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Proverbs+3:9

THOUGHT:
   Honoring God comes first in everything. We don't give him the last, the least, or the leftovers. He gave us his best, most precious, and most perfect of gifts -- his Son Jesus. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! How could we give him anything less than our best, our first, and our most precious?

PRAYER:
   Gracious God and loving Father, thank you for every good and perfect gift you have lavished upon me. Please accept the offering of my heart which I freely give to you. Soften it and make it gracious and generous like you. I commit to give you and your work in the world, my first and best. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Matthew 11:28-30


VERSE:
   Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
    -- Matthew 11:28-30
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Matthew+11:28-30

THOUGHT:
   I guess we could call it the irony of discipleship. To follow Christ means that we give up everything and follow him. To follow Christ means that we receive untold blessings in this life and eternal life with God in the life to come. So is it hard? Yes,
sometimes it is. But life is hard. Is the burden light as Jesus promised? Yes, because we know our lives are not lived in vain, that we are living life as God intended it, and when life is over, it isn't really over! We get to go home and be with our Lord!

PRAYER:
   Give me courage, O God, to face the challenges that I must confront. Give me charity to deal appropriately with those I meet. Give me thankfulness for all that you have done to bless me. Give me clarity to see that living for Jesus is the best of all choices. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 3:12

VERSE:
   May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
    -- 1 Thessalonians 3:12
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=1+Thessalonians+3:12

THOUGHT:
   God is love. God is also the source of love. He pours love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). So how do we make our churches, our families, our small groups, and communities more loving? We pray for God to grow the love in those in groups, let them know that we are praying that prayer for them, then
communicate and demonstrate our love to those very same groups.

PRAYER:
   Father, use me to help be an example of love to those around me. Please pour your love into my heart through your Spirit and then channel that love out of my life to others. Please help the loving spirit in our congregation grow more and more, not just to each other, but also to those around us who are not part of your Kingdom
family. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
