For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land,
A land with flowing streams,
A land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates,
A land of olive trees and honey,
A land where you may eat bread without scarcity,
A land where you will lack nothing.
You shall eat your fill and bless the Lord your God
For the good land that he has given you.
Take care that you do not forget the Lord your God,
By failing to keep his commandments.
When you have eaten your fill and have built fine houses and live in them,
Then do not exalt yourself, forgetting the Lord your God.
Do not say to yourself,
“My power and the might of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.”
But remember the Lord your God. – Deuteronomy 8:7-12, 14, 17-18
We look forward to seeing you in Worship this Sunday! Rev. Benjamin Wines will bring the message, “Abundance”. Our Scripture reading is 2 Corinthians 9:6-15, and our Call to Worship comes from Deuteronomy 8:7-12, 14, 17-18.
Questions for Further Reflection:
In this passage, Paul talks about giving abundantly and creating a cycle of thankfulness.
- What gifts has God given to you?
- In what ways can you share them with friends, family, or your wider community?
