God has good works for you to do
during your lifetime.
Read the following verses. Think
and pray about the verse that applies the most to your life.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see
your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good
works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
(Mordecai said to Esther) “If you remain silent at this time, relief
and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you
and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you
have come to royal position for such a time as this?”
2 Corinthians 9:8, 11
God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things
at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every
good work…You will be made rich in every way so that you can be
generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will
result in thanksgiving to God. .
1 Timothy 6:18-19
Tell the rich to use their money to do good. They should be rich in
good works and should give happily to those in need, always being
ready to share with others whatever God has given them. By doing
this they will be storing up real treasure for themselves in
heaven-- it is the only safe investment for eternity! And they will
be living a fruitful Christian life down here as well.
In response to all he has done for us, let us outdo each other in
being helpful and kind to each other and in doing good.
Many people go to their graves,
with God’s unplayed music still inside
Don’t waste your God-given life with low
living, small planning,
mundane talking, constant grumbling or
Be all that God has called you and
equipped you to be.
Emptying the Checkbook Before An Interview
friend, Matthew, was let go from his job. As the months passed, his
family survived on unemployment checks and the last of their savings. On
the night before a big job interview, he was going through his checkbook
and realized he hadn't given to the LORD in a number of months. Since
he and his wife had learned to give at least 10% of their income to the
LORD, he calculated how much they were behind in their giving and found
out it was all the money they had left in their checkbook. So, he wrote
out a check to the LORD for the full amount. When he told his wife what
he did, she screamed. But he reminded her, “God is our provider and this
is something we really need to do.” By God’s grace, he had a great
interview and was offered a better job than the one he lost.
