“Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds” (Proverbs 27:23,24). Livestock in the ancient world was like money in the bank–it was how wealth was stored and power measured. A herd needs careful tending, or it won’t reproduce at the right time. A herd that isn’t reproducing will simply die off in a few years. Have you ever thought that we are all custodians? We are here to take care of the blessings that God gives us! Why do we continue to pray for more and more “stuff”? Are we taking care of what God has giving us and are we being grateful for it? Are we just praying for an upgrade instead of being thankful?
God gives us so many blessings and we continue to ask for more!! When will we have enough?
Let’s be more mindful of the blessings we have and use those blessings to help others. God gives them to us for a reason and it’s not to keep asking for more, but to be thankful for what He has already given us!
So let’s be great custodians of our blessings. Take care of what we have and share them others! Be that light for Christ and more blessings will come without us asking and begging for them!
“It is liberating to see ourselves more and more as employees in God’s huge, wonderful company. He loves it when we take care of our part of the business”(bible app)
Happy Friday. Much love to each of you!
