Abundance - Up To Know Good on Friday

Up To Know Good on Friday

November 17, 2006

Check with pen

I was sorting through a stack of old mail and neglected papers when I came across a check from my friends Annie and Bill. As I looked at the date from over a year before, I remembered that they had written it for their half of a dinner bill. Now I couldn’t remember the last time I had eaten with them. With some guilt and regret, I set the check aside knowing that I didn’t feel comfortable cashing it.

Do Good - Do you have un-deposited gifts from God that you have neglected to redeem? Do you need His abundant love? Forgiveness? Grace? Mercy? Peace? All of these are like checks He has already given us. Don’t wait another minute to cash yours in!

When I told Annie about the check, she told me to cash it. I could hardly believe how nice she and Bill were about it. My embarrassment disappeared at their generosity, and I knew I was experiencing a piece of God’s abundant love and grace.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 Click here to read Ephesians 1:1-10.

God, we are so grateful for the abundance of Your gifts. Help us to humbly receive them today.

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
