Today's Verse : Proverbs 3:27

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. — Proverbs 3:27

Thought

Rather than "looking out for" only "number 1," we are to look out for those deserving of good — whether that be help, aide, praise, love, affection, attention, praise — and to act decisively to give them what they need and deserve. We are to be a people, as Paul tells us, that Jesus saved so we would be "eager to do good deeds" (Titus 2:14).

Prayer

Father, forgive me for my selfishness. I so often notice only my needs or what I deserve. There are so many good and deserving people you have placed in my life that have blessed me. Use your Spirit to open my eyes and my heart to see those around me that I can bless and give me the courage to act in ways that glorify you and are a blessing to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
