Thanksgiving: I Than the Lord for Persistence, For the Lord came down from Heaven to save those who were made lower than Angels and Calls them His Bride! We have been made perfect and all new by Him who has made all things in the heavens and on Earth!
It is Written, “While Jesus was teaching in the temple courts, he asked, “Why do the teachers of the law say that the Messiah is the son of David? David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: ” ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.” ‘ David himself calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?” The large crowd listened to him with delight. As he taught, Jesus said, “Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.” Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything–all she had to live on.” Mark 12:35-44
Prayer: I Pray Father that you Enlightened our Hearts so that we may not look to be important in the eyes of the World, but Spirit Filled to the eyes of the Lost in Jesus Name, Amen!
Amen! That we stop looking for immediate and unfulfilling praise from our peers but rather look for the later praise from God in Heaven!
