On Loan from God

July 13, 2017

“Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.” (Matthew 10:7-15)

I once heard someone say, “Everything we have is on loan from God.”

We tend to be our own biggest fans. We take credit for all of the talent we possess and all of the success we enjoy. We deserve everything we have because we earned it, and we are entitled to everything else that will come our way in the future.

How did we get his way? When did we lose sight of the role God has played in the design of our lives?

Every breath we take, everything we own, even who we are, is a gift from God. They are products of His grace.

When we pass these gifts on to others, it becomes a prayer of gratitude.

“Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.”

  1. When I pray in the mornings, part of my prayer is: God, without you I am nothing, without you I have nothing.
