Dear Bearer of the Cross,
“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
Hebrews 13:16 ESV
This passage stretches across the board in so many aspects of our lives. It emphasizes the posture of our hearts as believers. What was the mission of Christ as He journeyed the earth? He did not withhold from others. He was a great steward of the little that He did have when He resided here on earth. He loved immensely and He was not selfish about tangible or physical things— whether it was food or something else, the Bible is a solid record of relentless stories about the humility of the Lord. I think it is important that we ask ourselves— what is the position of your heart? Do you share freely and willingly? Is your heart in a posture of sacrificial stance? This requires the Spirit of the Lord filling and occupying our spirits and chipping away at our fleshly beings. It aligns with an attitude that resembles the desire to have less of ourselves and more of Him.
Share the good news, be a steward of the gifts that our Savior entrusted specifically to you, and walk in the joy and light of His love today!
1 Timothy 4:12
