A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, May 4

1 Timothy 6:17-19

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

All of us who read this today are extravagantly rich in comparison to many in other parts of the world today. We are in a position to do so much good. We are not held back by poverty, hunger, lack of resources. For these reasons, I must keep in mind the ever-present needs of others, both material and emotional. I am in a position to do a lot of good for others. Holding on to my money (or my time) does not lead to any good.

Father God, Open my eyes to opportunities to be generous with my wealth, in ways that are pleasing to you. Amen

Becky, transforming
