How can you release your need to be in control and give yourself over to God’s much bigger life today?
Practice for Today:The practice of giving is often thought of only in terms of generosity and the sharing of material possessions. But, we are called to give just as much because it takes faith, and it teaches us to release our reliance on our own abilities and resources. As we learn to give, so we learn to trust in God’s abundant life to sustain and empower us. Today, allow your giving to lead you into a deeper sense of trust in God’s grace.
Prayer for Today:As I give of myself and my resources, O God, so I learn to trust in your grace to sustain me.
