A container that is dead, dry, stiff and shrinking back cannot be entrusted as a storehouse for God’s valued treasure. That is when it becomes fun. "But what happens if my kids ask a question for which I have no answer?" you ask? The gospel was not designed to be hoarded; it was designed to be shared. Did He tell them how they were going to financially prosper; God meeting all their wants? I think this verse is talking about physical children, and also spiritual children (Christians).

Instead, he obeyed God’s command in Jeremiah 29:7 to “seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf.” Daniel worked hard, benefitted Babylon, and rose to great prominence. The Lord sent Hanani the seer to rebuke Asa. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. I wrote it in the margin of my Bible: “Lord, make me drunk with prayer!” I prayed what was really in my heart — the good, the bad, the ugly.

But his name carried a certain authority, and his guess grew into a tradition. Gifts from the Heart were collected to benefit hundreds of agencies and ministries with in-kind donations from domestic abuse shelters to cancer care kits. Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? It is a state of heart which appears before God in prayer and worship. It permeates the entire life of the Church and historically required no academic development as in the Western Church. [28] In the Orthodox view, devotion to Mary is considered an important element of Christian spirituality, and indifference to her by other Christian denominations is troubling to the Orthodox. [29] Orthodox theologian Sergei Bulgakov called denominations that do not venerate the Virgin Mary "another type of Christianity". [30] [31] The Orthodox approach to Marian devotions is characterized by three elements: Orthodox understandings of Mary have for centuries been mostly doxological and devotional rather than academic: they have been expressed in Marian hymns, liturgical poetry and the veneration of icons, rather than formal treatises.

We need to learn to soak, to dwell, to praise, to listen. Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God. I pray we can remember that, as worship leaders and as worshipers. Join us every Thursday as we meditate on all of God’s rich blessings in our lives and spend time expressing thankfulness to Him. The heart is deceitful and awfully wicked, who can understand it? How many of us place our hope in little green pieces of paper and silver coins thinking that if we just made a little more then we would be happy?

Praise is good, but if all we do is praise God, without ever listening to what he says, we have to ask whether we believe the words we are saying. I wanted to share this brief devotional with you all that I’ll be sharing at the next church council meeting. Also attention has rightly been called to the fact that St. Therefore Catholics act aright when they say: "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death."

Acts 16:23-26 “And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. (24) Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. (25) But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. (26) Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.” This Bible story begins the unjust arrest of Paul and Silas.
