Day One: Every Good Gift

Let’s read aloud the following passage and confession :

James 1:17a NIV
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights.

Cape Town Commitment: We Love God’s Word
We confess that we easily claim to love the Bible without loving the life it teaches – the life of costly practical obedience to God through Christ. Yet ‘nothing commends the gospel more eloquently than a transformed life, and nothing brings it into disrepute so much as personal inconsistency. We are charged to behave in a manner that is worthy of the gospel of Christ and even to ‘adorn’ it, enhancing its beauty by holy lives.’ For the sake of the gospel of Christ, therefore, we recommit ourselves to prove our love for God’s Word by believing and obeying it. There is no biblical mission without biblical living.

God is our loving Father who knows and cares for every detail of our lives, including finances and money. Truly, every good thing in our lives, including money, is the result of the loving kindness of our Father. Because he is our loving Father, we can turn to him and trust in him.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your word that brings light and life into every area of our lives, including this area of money and finances. Loving Father, teach us your ways and help us live according to your ways. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

In thanksgiving, let’s sing “Your Name” (Psalm 40) by Kingdom Kids (click here).
