Recently I was at an arcade with my grand-kids. They really know how to play those games! After they won came the big question, Which prize do you want? The whole wall was filled with toys, stuffed-animals, candy, balls, etc.. It was hard to decide.
This takes us to today's verse about the God who created and controls it all is concerned about your needs.
Look at this passage from the Message, And now I have it all—and keep getting more! The gifts you sent with Epaphroditus were more than enough, like a sweet-smelling sacrifice roasting on the altar, filling the air with fragrance, pleasing God no end. You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. Our God and Father abounds in glory that just pours out into eternity. Yes!
A great lesson here is about focusing more on the Giver not the gift. Today spend time thanking God for His generosity and daily provision. Amen?
