The Light Daily Devotional – Real Poverty
Focus: Real Poverty
The word for today
A poor man is not a man who has limited resources but a man who finds it difficult to give within the proportion and limit of His capacity. God did not create a man who has nothing to give, hence, he commands all men to give!
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom.” Luke 6:38b NKJV
A man is poor when he thinks he has nothing to give and lives his entire life thinking only about what he will get and not what to give.
Every man created by God must give and receive something. Nothing is free or automatic in life. The more you give the more you will receive. No matter how small the resources at your disposal may appear to be; you are not poor until you live your life with the ‘I don’t have’ mentality and you guide the affairs of your life by it.
The right approach to life is to live thinking only about what to offer and not what to receive.
What is the essence of your existence in the lives of men?
Prayer: Lord! Make me a blessing to my generation in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Emphasis: A man is poor when he only thinks about what to get and not what to give!
Have a Blessed Friday!
