Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
2 Corinthians 9:6-11
If we are made by God in his image, then we are designed to share, not just a little, but abundantly in his good works that is his creation in all of its wonderful and varied manifestations. We are to participate both passively and actively in God’s goodness. When I be-hold with my six senses the beauty and balance of the natural world, all that is good in human nature and most of all, all the fruits of the Holy Spirit bringing change around and through me, I let God’s goodness seep into my being. When I actively and generously pass on this richness of Life and Spirit to others, then I am actively sharing in God’s good works, and experience the never ending supply of goodness to which both Old and New Testament holy people and all the saints through the last two millennia have borne witnessed. Will I continue to largely ignore God’s grace and goodness or will I abundantly receive and share his goodness and his glory? Holy Spirit of God, help me share abundantly in your goodness.
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart. (Psalm 111:1)
Prayer is the root, the fountain, the mother of a thousand blessings
