There is joy in giving…

Learn to start giving and see the joy that comes with it. “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

Definition of sin

“Mother, Can you give me the definition of sin? Son, whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscious, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for spiritual things.”  -Susanna Wesley

If anything increases the authority and the power of the flesh over the spirit, that becomes Sin. However, good – it is in itself.

Uncovering God’s Word

I found this through the Bible App on one of their bible plans.

Ask – God to connect with you here. In prayer, start by slowing down, inviting God to be present. Begin with focus and openness to see what God has for you.

Read – the selection section of Scripture slowly. Take note of the words and phrases that intrigue you, reading them a second time if necessary.

Reflect – on what grabs you. What connections do you see at this point in your life? How might God be speaking to you through these words? Stop long enough to let this take root and thank God for encouraging you.

Respond – to the scripture. Speak directly to God about what’s on your mind and heart. Look for ways to live out what you’ve uncovered – individually and with your church. And look for ways to bring what you have discovered to others.
