Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

A Quote from D. L. Moody:

“A great many people are wondering why they don’t grow in grace; why they don’t have more spiritual power. The question is very easily answered. You have got your treasure down here. It is not necessary for a man to have money to have his treasure down here. He may have his heart on pleasure; he may make an idol of his children; and that is the reason they don’t grow in grace. If we would only just be wise and do as God tells us, we would mount up, as it were, on wings, and would get nearer to heaven every day. We would get heavenly-minded in our conversation, and have less trouble than now. And so, my friends, let us ask ourselves today, ‘Where is our treasure? Is it on earth, or in heaven? What are we doing? What is the aim of our lives? Are we just living to accumulate money, or to get a position in the world for our children? Or, are we trying to secure those treasures, which we can safely lay up in heaven, becoming rich toward God?’ ”

Prayer: Dear good and gracious heavenly Father, thank you for the great Bible leaders such as D. L. Moody who you have equipped to preach Your Word. Grant me an open and receptive heart and mind to the reading and preaching of Your Word. Use me as an instrument of Your grace, love, and mercy. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
