And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
Most every night, we pray before we start eating dinner. Our two-year-old doesn’t quite understand what we are doing, but we still try to set the example for her. She knows to be quiet and that at the end we say AMEN! We end each prayer asking that God help guide us to live our lives and follow His will for us. We thank Him for the ability to go to work and school and try to live lives that follow the example of Jesus Christ. Hopeful, that someone will look at us and want to get to know the generous love of Jesus based on our example.
We are very fortunate to have great jobs, a wonderful Sunday School class, a loving family, and a daughter who is a daily reminder of the depth of God’s love for us. I do not think we can ever be thankful enough for all that God has blessed us with. Giving faithfully to the church is one of the ways we can show our gratitude. As we sit here thinking of all the ways Custer Road UMC has impacted our family, I cannot help but feel a debt of gratitude greater than we could ever pay.
Dear God, As we make our commitments for this coming year, help us to give generously in Your Name and to be thankful for the opportunity to be a blessing in the life of this church and the lives of others. Amen.
