Morning Prayer, Monday, December 18, 2017 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: ARE YOU AN ANGEL?
Father God, angels are all around us and sometimes that angel may need to be me. Use me Lord. Amen
Proverbs 19:17 and Luke 6:38
"Angels are disguised as ordinary people that God sends into our lives to bless us or through us bless someone else." Someone shared with me a story which some of you probably read about where a pastor dressed up as a homeless person on the first day at his new church. He tried to talk to members of the congregation and even asked if they had any change to spare. He wanted to see just where the hearts of this new congregation stood. To his shock and amazement the outcome was not good. People treated him very badly, some as if he were a leper. I believe that God places people around us sometimes with a need that only we have the means to supply just to show us our hearts. To this point, I have heard some say "Well, I give in the offering at church," or "I can barely afford to take care of my needs." How would you feel if the person you shunned or just refused to help turned out to be an angel sent by God? What if God was testing you? Would you pass the test? Do you have a giving heart? The Bible says "Give and it will be give back to you, a good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over for the measure you give will be given back to you." Giving should not be one way. Just as we sometimes need someone with an open heart to show up on our behalf, there are people in this world who need our hearts to be open. God looks for givers for two reasons, one so that we can be a blessing to others, and two so that He can be a blessing to us. Don't know about anybody else but I don't want to miss not one blessing from God so I say, Lord, if you need me to be your earthly angel, here I am, send me.
