Our Devotion to God
Our careers, hobbies, and money are important but not worthy of our devotion. God alone deserves our wholehearted devotion. David exhorted his son Solomon to “serve [the Lord] with wholehearted devotion” (1 Chronicles 28:9 NIV); we are to have that same devotion. Our devotion to God is illustrated by the lifestyles that we lead as we steward our days in faithful service to Him.
Devotion can be expressed at every level and in every activity of life. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). To the church in Colossians Paul wrote, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men” (Colossians 3:23). As God’s stewards, we need to remember that even our most mundane tasks can be dedicated to God.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, You are my creator and redeemer. Help me to devote my time, talents, and treasures in service to You. Thank You for Your love, grace, and mercy. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your Journey as a Steward!
