Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We're not going to fool God. We will not escape a fundamental principle on which our world works. While we might put up a facade for others, God knows our hearts. What our hearts invest in our lives will ultimately display. We reap what we sow! So, if we spend our wealth, time, and interest in other things for ourselves and only give God the crumbs, we need to know that we will not reap a bounteous spiritual harvest. What we do to others is equally vital in sowing what is good. We must love our neighbors as we love ourselves, doing good to them because each person matters to God, and each should matter to us. Let's sow the seed that God loves so we can harvest what blesses us and those around us!

Video Commentary...

We've included Phil's ToGather video from four years ago as an added blessing to our verse today:

My Prayer...

O Lord God Almighty, who sees all things and knows all hearts, please give me the wisdom to see the people in whom I need to invest myself and help them find your grace. Help me, O Lord, to seize the opportunities you place before me to do good to others and sow love and grace into their lives. I ask for this help, in Jesus' name, and to honor Jesus as I serve others. Amen.
