Bible Study & Devotional Day 173
Written by: Torrie Slaughter
Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 17:22, ‘A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.’
🔴Cheer in Gratitude
Reading through the Bible yearly helps strengthen our capacity to be obedient to God’s Word. There are many benefits from creating a daily routine that spills over into other tasks. By keeping God first, we develop a deeper understanding of love.
God abundantly gives, and His love endures forever.
As you read each day, think about Jesus and His role within the passages. How are the Old Testament miracles foreshadowing Christ’s New Testament salvation?
We can choose to see the miracles of God through His daily work or arrogantly turn a blind eye. However, if we crush the spirits of those desiring to partner with us, we destroy the fruit of that relationship. Therefore, may we work diligently to fill our containers with life-producing oil.
Cheerfully give from the heart and serve with gratitude.
Prayer: Abba Father, we want to live the love You have shown Your servants. Let our attitudes, words, and behaviors please You. Let us treat each person with kindness and respect. No matter their role within our lives, remind us of the blessing You give through them. We have the opportunity to be a reflection of Your great kindness.
