IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I will always provide for you, and I will make you secure so that you can endure any challenge or trial. That does not mean you will never face hardship. You will always experience loss on earth. But I will provide in ways for you to overcome any setback. I will teach you to value what is valuable and to invest in people and things that will give back and even multiply your efforts.
Set an example for others by following me and submitting to me. Show the world what a faith-filled life looks like. Teach others to praise me for my goodness, to thank me for my generosity, to serve me by using your gifts, to worship me in good times or bad, and to confess your sin when you fall short. In other words, teach people to live. Equip them to respond to everything in prayer and to find comfort in my word. Make disciples, and remember, I am with you always.
Like David, do what is just and right for those in your life. Look for practical ways to bless others—in big or small ways.
