Go for the Greater Blessing

July 10, 2009

Late last night I worked on the family budget.  Early this morning Twitter sent me my ESV Daily Bible verse:

Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality (Romans 12:13).

What timing!  We middle-class believers have some questions to answer: Are we managing the resources God has given us so as to be able to give to needy saints and show hospitality?  If not, why not?  Can we identify any excessive spending habits that could be restrained for the sake of helping our brothers and sisters in need?

Having money to spend on ourselves is a blessing.  But there is a way to maximize that blessing (Acts 20:35).  Each of us can probably think of a needy brother or sister right now who could stand for us to choose the greater blessing.
