Prayer Pointers:

To recognize your life/yourself as a gift

To cultivate gratitude

Today’s text: Hebrews 2:11-18

THE ISRAELITES WERE commanded over and over to remember, remember, remember because it would be deadly for them to begin to think that their place in the Land was gained by their own might. Few in numbers, God gave his people a place to stand, food to eat, wealth to enjoy, all for the sake of the promise to Abraham and his children (Psalm 105).

Likewise, we must remember! We have nothing that is our own—even our own lives come to us as gift, and the work we do, the things we accomplish with the life that is in us should cause us to pause in gratitude for the God who decided to bring each of us into existence and then, in answer to our rebellious NO, humbles himself to be with us. It is God’s nature to give.

And as we remember, let us be grateful: grateful for how others help us (none of us can stand alone), grateful for how we can help others (we should do our share or what we can). Gratitude will carry us far in life.

May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
