who’s ways?

“So are My ways higher than your ways”  Isaiah 55:9

What does it mean when God says His ways are higher than our ways?  For me, I think it means that because we are sinful and human, we usually have an ulterior motive for doing things.  Whatever that motive may be, it’s only in our humanness that we tend to do things, make decisions, act out, do, become or try at something.  God is saying that He is perfect and is omniscient and that His ways are better than ours.  That is why we need to lift up our decision making to Him so He can bless, guide and direct those decisions. 

Lord, help me today and everyday to make those decisions that will be blessed by You, so that they may prosper because of You.  Amen.

is it good to give?

Scripture says this among many other verses in the Bible, “He who gives to the poor will lack nothing,
       but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.
”  Proverbs 28:27

For me, this verse tells me how important it is to give and give back, not just out of your wealth, but from your heart and from your hands.

In another verse just before this one scripture states this, ” A stingy man is eager to get rich
       and is unaware that poverty awaits him
.”  Proverbs 28:22

WOW!!  What knowledge, and wisdom that come from our Powerful(Omnipotent), all knowing(Omniscient) Father!!

I know that writing checks are easy and important, but let’s also give with our time and energy. 

Of course and more importantly is this, to heed our Father’s warning’s is very important and as I read this, I realize how important it is to give as He tells us to. 

Closed fists can’t give anything.  Open hands give all!!!
