The Clock and the Dollar.

Our Thought for the Day comes from the Book of Luke Chapter 16:10-13.
10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own? 13 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
This Sunday I will use this verse in the Message on the Five Disciplines that should be a part of every Christian’s walk with the Lord. This verse is about the Stewardship of money. I just want to remind us that we have something of greater value than all the money we can accumulate or possess. We have the gift of salvation of our souls through the shed blood of Jesus our Lord and Saviour who died upon a cross for that salvation we possess. Where this is of great value to us there is the expectation from Jesus that we share this gift. This gift which we hold that is of such great value. With money if you give it away the money will eventually run out. But not so with the sharing of your salvation with others. It is something that will never lose its value and in fact with the sharing of your salvation with others you are accumulating wealth and rewards in heaven. So, let me encourage you during this time of Thanksgiving share that which you will be eternally thankful for, the gift of your salvation and forgiveness of sins through the shed blood and sacrifice of Jesus. Our Soap Scriptures this morning are from the Book of Matthew Chapter 17-19. May God bless you as you read his Word this morning. May He also speak to your heart and bring you the peace you need for this Day. Pastor Richard. Text. 503-819-8663 Email. firstname.lastname@example.org
