Today’s Verse

“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.”

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

When we talk about giving to God, or to the work of God, we must remember that it is all his. He doesn’t need our gifts to do his work. On the other hand, we do need to share the blessings he has entrusted to us. What we ‘have’ isn’t really ours; it’s all his, entrusted to us to be put into useful service to others for God’s work and God’s glory.

My Prayer…

Almighty God and Creator of the universe, I praise your creative genius revealed through the incredible variety found in your creation. Please be with us, your human children, as we seek to be faithful stewards of this wonderful gift. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Today’s Verse Illustrated

26 --  The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it.
