Mid-week Stewardship Thought

Love Motivates our Gratitude

Love came down from Heaven to us in the incarnate Christ. Because of His love for us, our Father gave His only Son, Who, through His death, destroyed death. He, Who became one of us so that He could atone for our sins, has suffered for us and is therefore able to help us through our earthly trials (Hebrews 2:14-18). Certainly, as we consider what His love has brought about for us, we can have no response but humble gratitude. The giving of ourselves and all we have – our time, our gifts, our money – is a meaningful way to show our love and gratitude to God for all He has done for us through His Son, our Savior Jesus. His love for us prompts us to acts of love in response.

Prayer: Gracious God, we thank You for Your indescribable gift! Your love motivated You to act on our behalf. Help us to show our gratitude for Your Love. In Christ, I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
