Borrowed Things

A young woman helps to paint a house

He must increase, but I must decrease.—John 3:30 (ESV)

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, “Did it ever occur to you that you do not really own a thing, not a single thing? You are entrusted by the Lord according to your own ability to handle some of His goods for a while. If you use things selfishly for yourself, you will probably lose them and you will certainly lose the values that would come to you if you would use them for God.“

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, free me of selfish thoughts and deeds.
