Charles Stanley Quote

Christians are to be like rivers, not stagnant lakes.  The blessings God gives us are to be shared instead of hoarded.

From 2 Corinthians 9:6-8:  “The point is this:  the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not regretfully or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.”

Monday Memories: Living to Give

Apostle Paul writes in Galatians 6:14:  “But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Christ comes to the world

Bringing God’s love to us

 

Jesus sets the bar high

Higher than we can reach

 

Christ delivers two true teachings

To a sinful, unsaved world

 

Love your God, the Father

Love others more than yourself

 

Jesus does more than preach

He teaches us God’s truth

 

His hands heal the sick

Later pierced with sharpened nails

 

He raises up the dead

Just as He will rise

 

Christ, the Messiah, brings hope

He is Savior to mankind

 

Wearing a crown of thorns

Humbles himself on the Cross

 

Rising from a dark tomb

Christ forever defeats our sins

 

Christ serves His Holy Father

His sacrifice continues to give

 

He lives

The Resurrection lives

Eternal life lives

 

Respond to Christ in prayer

Humble, grateful—on our knees

Honor and praise Jesus Christ

Our eternal Savior and protector

His love lights the way

Accepting Jesus as our Savior

Just Another Day

Photo by Jenny Uhling on Pexels.com

Driving dusty country road

Spotting landscape’s mountain peak

Deciding to climb her now

 

Stopping at cozy diner

Feeling extra hungry now

Ordering one more entrée

 

Traveling to nearby park

Witnessing fall’s colors now

Taking plenty of photos

 

Locating brand new car wash

Seeing truck looks dirty now

Selecting supreme wash job

 

Seeing family in need

Buying them blessed, hot meal

Filling up empty tank now

 

Pausing, time with Father now

Praying for needs of others

Thanking Him for many gifts

 

Wrapping up for now . . . just another day!
