Today's Verse: 1 Corinthians 9:14

Tuesday, September 14, 2004

In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.
— 1 Corinthians 9:14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

One of the great tragedies of our modern world is that while some who preach and teach the gospel are charlatans and cheats, the vast majority of God's servants work just barely scraping by financially. Why not find some underpaid and forgotten Kingdom servant and share a little of the blessings God has given you?

My Prayer...

Holy Father, I thank you for your servants who share your message all over the world. Father, I want to especially thank you for ___ and I ask you that this person will be blessed with good health, a faithful and loving family, and the proper support to do your work in a way worthy of your cause. Please use me to bless and encourage this minister of your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
