And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work...
— 2 Corinthians 9:8 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What a powerful promise! If we are willing to generously share with others in the name of Jesus as the apostle Paul discusses in the previous two verses, we will have what we need and our lives will be full of good deeds that bring glory to God. So let's remind ourselves of one the very first lessons we should have learned as young children: share! Only this time, as children of God, let's share in the name of Jesus to bless others so they may come to his grace.

My Prayer...

Thank you, dear Father, for all the incredible blessings you have poured into my life. You have richly blessed me physically and spiritually. Now I ask that your Spirit will help me be generous with the gifts you have so richly given to me. May my life, O Lord, be a consistent conduit of your blessings so that others may come to know your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
