TODAY’S READING

1 Peter 4:8-11

KEY VERSE: Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights. – James 1:17 (NRSV)

MESSAGE

It was as if I had never experienced fresh air! It was renewing. On that day, thoughtful friends helped me rediscover a gift I had forgotten.

Each day is a gift from God; but how often do we pause to think about each day as the refreshing new gift it is? We tend to take simple, recurring experiences for granted; that is, until we no longer have them.

INVEST IN IRAs, SECURE YOUR FUTURE

Sometimes difficulty, like a bad ankle, helps us think about God’s simple blessings. My ankle surgery was a brief setback; but through the kindness of friends, it awakened me to gifts I previously failed to notice or fully appreciate. Each day is a breath of fresh air from God — a time to celebrate all of God’s perfect gifts.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

What simple joy from God will I give thanks for today?

TODAY’S PRAYER

Thank you, God, for each new day with all that it offers, and forgive us for failing to notice or fully appreciate it. In the name of Jesus, who gave the greatest gift. Amen.
