“So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren that they would go on ahead to you and arrange beforehand your previously promised bountiful gift, so that the same would be ready as a bountiful gift and not affected by covetousness” (2 Corinthians 9:5).

The Lord provides in many ways.  Whether through another person, or in a way you do not understand, realize that all good gifts come from the Lord.  Do not covet because you do not have, nor think more highly of yourself because you have more.  Instead, in all things, give thanks to the Lord for His goodness and mercy.  Be one through whom the Lord works that You may be in His will.

Lord, teach me to live as You would have me live.  Guide me in Your goodness that I would do those things You give me to do and be content in all circumstances.  Help me to understand that You are constantly arranging things according to Your will.  Let me willingly receive all things that You give and be filled with joy that You have made possible this gift of salvation.

Lord Jesus, You lived a life filled with purpose as You went and invited all to join You.  Help me to live in the same purpose, not being concerned with my day to day circumstances, but rejoicing that I am walking with You.  Lead me this day in the way You would have me go that I may do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight.  In all things, may I always be thankful that I am with You.  Amen.
