Grace Moments Devotions - December 13, 2017

Share your toys

Have you noticed by now how many teachings of Christ are paradoxes (that is, they seem to contradict established principles of human life)? When Jesus said that in God’s world “the last shall be first and the first shall be last,” he really meant it. God’s economics sometimes require a leap of faith, but here’s the amazing thing—his principles work just as he promises!

Here’s an example: “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed” (Proverbs 11:25). You’d think that this is absurd. After all, if I give my stuff to other people, I will automatically have less. But in Godonomics, people who trust his words and dare to live them will find his magic and “refreshing” all over the place.

God loves it when you show hospitality . . . share food with the hungry . . . contribute to a homeless shelter . . . volunteer at a thrift store . . . mentor a fatherless kid . . . hire a disabled adult . . . guard a school crossing . . . drive an elderly person to the doctor . . .


Challenge Grant makes your gift worth TWICE as much!

Generous donors have stepped forward with a $350,000 grant—and they’re challenging friends like you to meet it in full!

That means your gift will be worth TWICE as much to help share the timeless truths of God’s Word through television and digital outreach.

When you give, we’ll say thanks by sending you our 30-day devotional book Here I Am, Lord to help you build a closer connection with God.
