The Light Daily Devotional – Don’t Give Stone in place of Bread
Focus: Don’t Give Stone in place of Bread
WORD FOR TODAY
The most important test before all men is the manner they handle what belongs to others. The way you will never give your children stones instead of bread or snakes instead of fish; you must not give other people’s children!
“Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? Matthew 7:9 NIV
The way you have an obligation to take care of your children so also you have with other children that comes your way. There is a measure of God in all His creations and they must be treated with honour and dignity. All men have selfish tendencies and want the best for their children. Several men become slack or even exhibit wickedness when treating other people’s children. Some people chose to incapacitate or subject other men’s children to intense labour for the service of their children.
What goes around comes around. A man who gives other men’s children stones instead of bread is sowing the seed of hardship and will not have the moral justification to pray to God to soften the life’s battles of his children. The Lord is using all children kept in your custody as a test for you and they represent objects of an answer to the prayers you are offering to God. Be mindful of the fact every man that comes in contact with you reports you to God in their heart with respect to their experiences with you.
+ What do you offer to men?
Lord! Make me a blessing and only blessing to my world in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You have succeeded in sowing the seed of hardness each time you offer stone in place of bread!
Have a Fantastic Thursday!
