Today's Verse: Proverbs 3:27 (KJV)

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
— Proverbs 3:27 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Rather than "looking out for" only "number 1," we are to look out for those deserving of good — whether that be help, aide, praise, love, affection, attention, praise — and to act decisively to give them what they need and deserve. We are to be a people, as Paul tells us, that Jesus saved so we would be "eager to do good deeds" (Titus 2:14).

My Prayer...

Father, forgive me for my selfishness. I so often notice only my needs or what I deserve. There are so many good and deserving people you have placed in my life that have blessed me. Use your Spirit to open my eyes and my heart to see those around me that I can bless and give me the courage to act in ways that glorify you and are a blessing to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
