First Fruits

.Bring to God your best, your “first fruits.” He doesn’t want lazy offerings. He wants your attention, your devotion. Don’t give him the scraps, the leftovers of your day. Give Him your whole day because what He really wants is your whole life.

ln Him we live and move and have our being.” Be aware of His presence and offer Him the moments, the conversations, the attitudes, the situations. He wants it all, all that is you.

In the Midst

If the Holy Spirit is in you, then you have God in your presence. He’s there in the midst of your day. He’s there in the middle of the mess, in the middle of the chaos, in the middle of the laughter, in the middle of the singing. Wherever you are is where His family is gathered, and He promises to be there too: eating around the kitchen table, playing on the living room rug, reading a good night book on the bed. Look for Him there in the middle of it all, in all the little moments of your day. See Him there. Hear Him there. Honor Him in those moments by shining His light and sharing His love.
