BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation: and Thy right hand hath holden me up, and Thy gentleness hath made me great.? Psalm 18:35
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Can a person donate to the poor and not have love? Can a person work in a soup kitchen for the homeless and not have love? Yes. Now, you may say, ?A person wouldn?t do that!? Oh yes they would if they had a guilty conscience. Sometimes it is neater to write a check or donate some used things than to give of our time. Do you know what the world needsí Not more money, though I?m sure they?d be glad to take it. First Corinthians 13:3 says, ?And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.? You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving of yourself to others.
ACTION POINT: How about you? Are you serving others out of a guilty conscience? Are you tithing out of a guilty conscience? Ask God to teach you how to love others by dying to self and living for Him.
