God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7 (CEB)

It always gives my heart a lift in the morning to put out some crumbs for the squirrels and birds in the yard outside my apartment. I enjoy watching them come and busily feast on their find. Although I know it’s our heavenly Father who ultimately provides for all creatures...

Today's Prayer
Dear Father, help us always to give cheerfully, as you so faithfully give to us. In Christ’s name we ask this. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
