Word on the WAY
December 9 – December 16, 2013
All passages are from The New Living Translation
Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer.
Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ’It is more blessed to give than to receive.’"
The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the LORD, and King David was filled with joy.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
