A Stranger’s Generosity

I made a new friend in our building’s laundry room last week. I had loaded a huge pile of wet clothes into a dryer, then realized I had no money. A woman noticed my dilemma, held our her laundry card and said, “Here, use mine!”

Her generosity reminds me of God’s, who gives good gifts to people who don’t yet know him.

“Before they call, I will answer”  (Isaiah 65:24).

 

Sacrifice

I read this: “Offer right sacrifices” (Psalm 4:5) and wondered what God wants from me.

Then I read this: “I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch” (Psalm 5:3).

After that I remembered we’re told to present our “bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God”  (Romans 12:1).

Prayer is preparing yourself to be a living sacrifice for God.
