Those who plant only for their own benefit will harvest devastation from their selfishness, but those who plant for the benefit of the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit.
Galatians 6:8 CEB
Thank You Father for my blessings and for opportunities to praise You. Help me to always see those who I can help, so that I can be a blessing to others. Amen.
Our blessings come from one source– God–and are not just for us. When we’re blessed we’re supposed to pay it forward. When God provides us with seeds, be grateful and be sure to plant with the intention of sharing the harvest. If not, you will face the humiliation of spoiled crops.
Questions of the Day
1. Share a time when your selfishness got the best of you?
2. What “seeds” are you ready to plant?
