Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things

And they scoffed. The Pharisees, who thought themselves the standard for upholding an appearance of righteous living, scoffed at the thought of being faithful in the use of wealth.

Oh, I’m sure they gave their tenth in a truly legalistic way.

But is that Jesus’ definition of faithful?

Two small copper coins for your thoughts on this?

“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you? And if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and were scoffing at Him. And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God.
Luke 16:10‭-‬15

Praise through the storm

As we go through life we will inevitably encounter times of uncertainty, even faith testing struggles. But we find our strength again when we praise and worship our God. Jesus is the object of our faith. Our faith is not in a building, denomination or anything created. Our faith is in the creator, the Lord God, the great “I Am”.

Revive us, Lord. Inhabit our praise. Holy Spirit move in us and strengthen our resolve to run the race with renewed vigor.

This song has most recently helped bring my heart and mind into a time of worship. I hope it helps you today.

Joy Comes In The Morning

Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Psalms 30:4‭-‬5‭, ‬11‭-‬12 NASB

Thanks to the Lord

I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
