Breaking Bread for 1.14.20

Scripture

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”

James 3:13

Reflection

The true indication of a good life is not one filled with material wealth and riches, but through the demonstration of contentment with God’s plan. It is expressed through our humility, in knowing that what we have today, may be taken tomorrow. The understanding that we should never take for granted the things that we have—whether spiritual, physical, or material.

The wisdom gained from past loss should humble us to appreciate the smallest things in life as much or more than the big things. Our humility makes us most grateful for breathing in life each day, and for whatever senses we have use of. From there the rest of our blessings are countless.

These things, my friends, are the indication of a good life.

Strive for the humility that comes from wisdom (from past lessons learned) and accept what God brings to you. For those are the greatest gifts we can ever receive. Be receptive. Embrace what He brings to you, however it is presented. It’s for your growth and His glory.

Let today be Take Everything in Stride Tuesday!

Prayer

Father I pray for clarity, discernment, humility and wisdom—that can only come from You. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Love,

Natasha
