Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
When I read this in my email this morning, I knew I had to share it today! If we could all genuinely say this prayer every day…wow! What a difference our lives would be and the lives of others.
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
2 Thessolonians 3:10
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
1 Timothy 6:18
My youngest turned 5 today! It is a surreal thing having your “baby” turn 5. He is now a whole hand old. He represents that all my children are no longer babies. This verse reminds me of him. He may be rotten a lot of the time, but he is always generous and willing to share. His time (I know at 5 that sounds odd, but it is true) and his possessions. Already quite a few of his gifts are doled out to his siblings. I pray he keeps that trait!
