4 January 2022 – Can We So Love…?

“God loved the world so much that He gave…” – John 3:16

 

Isaiah 58 talks about the type of fast that is acceptable to God, and surprisingly, its not about food or lengthy prayer times. It’s about being generous to others and to God with our time, talents, & resources. It’s about moving out of the center of our own universes and practicing preference of others needs before our own. Instead of being selfish, let’s look for ways to serve others. Instead of asking for things for ourselves, let’s ask God how we can bless others and even His heart.

 

Prayer: Jesus, I love You and thank You for today. Help me to focus on You and the needs of other people. Teach me to live and love the way You do by laying down my life and desires for You and for those around me. Amen.
