Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional
GIVING AND RECEIVING!
Luke 6:38 – Devotional
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
Yesterday I was on my way home following church service. As I approached an intersection I noticed people leaving their cars and running into the intersection. As I came closer I saw that a motorcycle was on its side and the rider was receiving help to get his cycle righted. It was way too heavy for him to lift alone and required the assistance of others.
As I have replayed that incident in my mind over the past several hours, I have become aware that there are many people around us who find themselves in need. They may not have a motorcycle lying on its side, but they are just as needy.
When we consider what God calls us to do we need to be aware that there are countless ways of being the Lord’s servants to those around us. At my age I am not able to accomplish many physical tasks that once seemed so simple.
I have had the blessing of giving to others across the years and to tell the truth it is much easier to do for others than it is to humble yourself and allow others to do for you. I guess we might all be like that man who needed help getting his cycle back up once again. There is a time for giving as well as for receiving!
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
