S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
Toward the end of his life, King David gave a personal offering to the Lord to start the building fund for the temple his son Solomon would build after David’s death. The offering in today’s dollars would total around $870 Million!! And yet earlier in his life David cried to God and said, “I am poor and needy.”
David had learned through his years of following the Lord that there is much more to life than money. He realized that to have earthly wealth and yet still be dependent on your own ability, strength, intelligence, and wisdom was useless. In fact, that kind of a life leaves a person “Poor and Needy.” I think what makes David’s life so special, and why he’s so much more than just another king, was his candor and flat out honesty. How many people do you know who seem to have everything but peace? Why is that? Perhaps they just won’t admit that what they thought they needed the most hasn’t brought “Peace of Mind.” Instead of admitting it, they continue to pursue the same old thing. “Be Honest About It!” We don’t need more of us today. We need more of Jesus.
With an open heart this AM, I admit I have more than I deserve. But without You and more of You, I’m just “Poor and Needy.” I need you Lord and I always will. Amen
