Sunday July 20th, 2014 – When God has delivered or blessed us, we become responsible for that blessing. We have to do something with it and resist the temptation to stay needy. We are responsible to invest what we have been given and to live for Christ. We must also show God’s love for us by sharing our testimony. We are responsible for what God gives us.
What do you worry about right now? Hasn’t God already shown up for you? Hasn’t he already shown himself to be faithful to you? Why are you worried? Be responsible for what He’s given. Freely you’ve received, freely you give. – Dwayne Terry

See, here is what belongs to you.’ 26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28 ” ‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. 29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance.
