"But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?  Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand." - 1 Chronicles 29:14

Dear Lord, David was astounded that he would get to participate in your big temple project.  He did not see it as a burden but as a blessing.  Help me to see all the opportunities you give me to serve as a blessing and not a burden.  Who am I that you should allow me with all my weaknesses to spread your precious words with people? Who am I that you would promise to make my money worth more if I invest in your movement on earth?  Who am I that you would ask me to fit into your holy congregation and work with these people who are made saints by you?  Melt my hard heart that so often selfishly complains and make me thankful like David.  In Jesus' redeeming name, AMEN.

 "To be thankful for an opportunity to serve is the blessing of faith."
