THE STORY OF JESUS: 1 Chronicles 28-29
“We have given you only what comes from your hand.” (1 Chronicles 29:14)
What do I have that I have not received?
My mind, my mouth, my hands, my home, my car, my income, my education, my time?
Every about me is a gift from You, a trust to be used well.
My life is Your gift to me; what I do with it is my gift to You!
All people, from the least to the greatest, have been gifted by God for a purpose.
David had his purpose, Solomon had his, the leaders also had theirs.
Every day we have an opportunity to build something for God, for good.
“All this I have given willingly and with honest intent.” (1 Chronicles 29:17)
Can I echo these words for my own life?
As a Jesus follower, you can see yourself as extremely graced and gifted.
No matter how rich or poor, strong or weak, known or unknown, we have a calling.
God does not judge us for what we do NOT have, but what we do with what we DO have.
Today is God’s gift to us, to build something beautiful for Him.
“Offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.” (Romans 12:1)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, may what I do today help build Your kingdom of love, joy and peace!
