Today’s Task Reading:
On day 50 we discussed how giving is a realistic way to say we are not attached to our money. On day 51 we discussed how we cannot hoard our gifts and keep it for ourselves, because it won’t grow and we’ll miss out on the benefits of having a generous spirit. On day 52 we discussed how it’s important for us to have the right attitude when giving. On today we will discuss that we should focus on doing God’s will with money.
We can’t take money with us in heaven so we need to be wise while using it on earth. We need to use money to benefit our family and community. Money doesn’t belong to us anyway. If we look at money as if it belonged to God, we would look at it differently. Philippians 4:17 shows us that there are blessings that comes from giving. That is why Jesus said in Acts 20:35 that it is more blessed to give than to receive. There are many people around us that are in need. We can ignore them or help them. Proverbs 28:27 emphasizes that anyone that gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who ignore them will be cursed.
Today’s Prayer: God, we love You and adore You. Thank you for helping us not be attached to our money. Thank you for helping us to not keep our gifts for ourselves so we can experience the benefits of having a generous spirit. Thank you for showing us the importance of having the right attitude when giving. Thank you for helping us focus on doing God’s will with money. Help us to be wise with money while we are using it. Help us to use money to benefit our family and community. Help us the experience the blessing that comes from giving. Forgive us for being unwise with our money and only using it to benefit ourselves. Forgive us for all our debts, trespasses, and sins as we forgive our debtors and those who have trespassed and sinned against us. Lead us not into temptation. Everyday help us to be equipped with the full armor of God as You deliver us from evil. For Yours is the Kingdom, Power and Glory. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
