“Without cost you have received, without cost you are to give.”
I do not know when we each became so important that we own our own lives.
When did we decide that it is a choice to give,
that it is taking of our own time,
taking of our talents?
Things that are not even our own to begin with!
When did we become so greedy?
Lord, take time to remind us each day that nothing is our own.
We are Yours.
All we have is all You’ve given.
Humble us into knowing that we are just renters.
Renting this body.
Renting this living space.
Renting these things.
Renting these feelings.
Renting this life.
At the end of the lease
all of that is gone.
All that remains are the things that we say or do in Him name.
And those things that we didn’t say or do in Him name.
help us to be the best tenants that we can be while we are here.
