How Have You Employed It?

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
For faithful is the word of God,
his works with truth abound;
for he loves justice, and the earth
is with his goodness crowned.
 —Psalm 33:4-5
Suggested tune: Manoah (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.
—Luke 12:48
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The more golden talents any are entrusted with, the more they have to answer for; the more their revenues, the more their reckonings. God will say, I gave you a great estate, what have you done with it? How have you employed it for my glory?
 —Thomas Watson
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Thank you, Lord, for the gifts you have given me. Give me the wisdom and the courage to put them to use for your glory...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
