Verse of the Day
Grow Closer to God and Deepen Your Faith Each Day

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
It is tempting to get caught in the race to become wealthy and successful – and to grow prideful when you seem to acquire riches. Do you know people who take pride in their work and believe they have earned every penny by their own hard work? Many people feel this way. However, as believers, we know that if we gain riches, it is only because God has given us the ability to gain riches. When we understand everything we've made comes from him, it makes a difference how we spend our money and how we live our lives.
My Prayer...
Generous Father, forgive me for my forgetfulness. Deep down I know I don't deserve all the good things you have poured into my life, yet I sometimes find myself thinking that I've earned them. Use your Spirit to forge in me a heart like Jesus, who did deserve everything good and yet gave it all up to come to earth and give me the greatest gift imaginable — the gift of your salvation! Thank you so much for this gift of grace and the many other undeserved gifts that you have lavished on me. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.
