Quiet Time with Jesus – The Giving Spirit

The pattern of this world

I wanted to buy a can of abalone. The seller asked, “Are you buying it as a gift? This brand is good enough.” Then, she explained further, “If you are buying for yourself, I recommend this other brand. It is better.”

The Word of God

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.
— Romans 12:2

We must change our way of thinking. We must change our way of living. When we are redeemed by Christ, we are born again - as a new creation in Christ. The infant in Christ must feed on the Word and yield to the teaching of the Holy Spirit.

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

Nurture the giving spirit in us.

Write Your Word on our hearts. Renew our minds. Teach us a new way of life.

 We want to be ambassadors for Christ and show the world that we are different. 

Remind us to do things to bless others and not ourselves.

Remind us to think of others first before we think of ourselves.

Help us to be a living testimony of Your goodness and love.

In Jesus’ lovely name I pray.

Lam Yee Ling

Father, not my will but Yours be done. Amen.
