“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; as it is written, “He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor, His righteousness endures forever”  (2 Corinthians 9:8-9)

The Lord provides for all equally.  What we do with it is something else.  The Lord causes the rain to fall upon the just and the unjust.  You have been given the Good News of salvation which comes through Christ.  His righteousness is offered to you.  Come then and live a life that rejoices in the goodness of His grace and mercy.  Know that all who are in the Lord are provided for.

Lord, I hear the untruths that do not come from you.  I do not need to look far in order to see the hindrance of sin between Your provision and the unfulfilled needs of my neighbor.  Help me to see things clearly that I would never join with those who accuse You.  Instead, grant me a heart that rejoices in truth and loves all whom You love.  Your righteousness alone endures forever.

Lord Jesus, You came as One who lived without and gave away all that You could to those around You.  Finally, You gave to us all the righteousness we could never have apart from You.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may live into the life You offer.  Guide me, O Lord, that I may walk in Your footsteps and grow into Your likeness.  Strengthen me through all things to become more like You.  Amen.
