Day 51 – February 20, 2021
Scriptures: Leviticus 4-5, 2 Corinthians 8
Giving our best
Today’s a good day to encourage one another to give our very best. Paul commends the Macedonians for their incredible gift of generosity, despite their poverty. In today’s reading from the book of Leviticus we read of the demands of atonement sacrifices.
My brief but important connection is to the spirit of the giver. Accommodations are made for the well off and those are or poor. Accommodations to give and trust int the Lord are made in Leviticus. And we see the important connection to how Paul viewed the gift of grace. He saw their generous hearts and celebrates it.
We are encouraged to give God our very best, no matter what we have. Our best is a cheerful and generous heart.
Be a blessing today, live with grace!
