A Daily Devotion for Monday, July 4
1 Chronicles 29:14
”But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
This verse makes me think about how often we honor and take care of things that have been given to us by others, because of our love for the giver: when we dust, or move around, or repair things that belonged to our parents, for example. We honor and respect that which came to us from someone we love and respect. How much love and care should I show when I handle any thing which has come from God? I must be respectful of and thankful for all of God’s creation, and all of God’s gifts.
Holy One, you taught us to love and respect one another. May we love and respect all your many gifts. Amen
