God, you are much more generous and loving than I give you praise or credit. When I reflect (and if I am completely honest), I live life like there isn’t enough to go around. My attitude of scarcity makes me fill my basement and want to keep what is mine. I take more than I ever could use or need physically (and emotionally), leaving the well dry for others.
Startle me, O God,
Remind me….the world doesn’t revolve around me.
Remind me… “being comfortable” isn’t what Jesus had in mind.
Remind me… Kin-dom building requires the sharing and giving of power.
Remind me…to give not from what I have left, but from what I can give first.
Remind me…because I often forget.
