Scripture reading for September 5th: Proverbs 1-4, Philippians 4
Key Scriptures: Philippians 4:17-20 “Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account. I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Paul had received a generous and appreciated offering from the believers in Philippi. He let them know that it was a blessing and that God saw it as a fragrant offering acceptable in His sight. Not only that, but God would meet all their needs as well, according to His riches in glory! Our God owns it all–Amen!
Proverbs 3:9-10 “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first-fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for meeting all my needs. Help me to always honor you with my wealth and giving me the ability through Jesus Christ to offer acceptable sacrifices. Amen.
