A Daily Devotion for Thursday, November 24
2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to bless you abundantly; so that in all things and at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Today I am thankful to God for all His blessings. His blessings are abundant: this beautiful Fall day, family and friends, and good food. But I think this verse in particular is meant to give one courage to step out and do "good work." Today I wonder about doing more for others, being more generous, giving more time and energy to loving God's people. God's abundance will provide me with what I need in order to do this.
Holy Lord, your gifts and blessings never end. Help me to put them to the best use possible. Your gifts to me are not just for me- they are to allow me to love others more fully. Guide me, Lord, and thank you for today. Amen
