Lighting each other’s candles

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will too be refreshed” Proverbs 11:25.

I wonder how differently things would have played out for King Saul had he not only been obedient to God’s instructions, but had he also embraced the big calling upon David’s life–as apposed to doing everything in his power to try to stop it. We can only imagine how differently the story would have unfolded, had the king repented from his sin, accepted his short-comings and extended a hand of grace to the anointed, young man “after God’s own heart.”

In Jeremiah 17:10, the Lord boldly declares, “I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”

Our lights do not dim by lighting each other’s candles. We rise by lifting up others. A generous heart will always prosper–and love always wins! ❤️

Heavenly Father,

Help us to be men and women readily available to extend a hand of grace to others in need. Let us do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but instead let us consider the needs of others more important than our own. Let us bless whom you tell us to bless, without any hesitation and in a spirit of truth & love. Please keep our hearts genuine & pure and may we shine for your glory. Help us to get this right Lord! In Jesus’ mighty & precious name we pray. 💜
