Devotion - Monday, February 5

Hebrews 16 ends with these words:  "Share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God"

We had a wonderful discussion at yesterday's Leadership Team meeting.  It was about service.  Particularly whether serving others is important to who we are as a ministry group.  

The nature of college life makes it way to easy to look to some later time in our lives when we will do things like serve others or share what we have.  This sets up a habit, a habit of always thinking "I will be able to do that later."

The life of a Christian is to be marked by serving others.  Jesus makes this very clear.  Sharing what you have is pleasing to God.  Sharing what you have is what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

How can you share your time, your energy, your skills?  How can you share your spirit, your vision of life, your sense of joy?  And getting in the regular habit of sharing your money starts now.

Sharing what we have also reminds us that what we have is a gift from God, shared with us.  As Christians we view possessions as that over which God has asked us to be stewards.  Good stewardship means making the best use of the things God has entrusted to us.

Share.  Share what you have.  And do not wait for some organized service project to be active in serving.
