I’m back! The last three weeks are the busiest of my year. Two weeks of training our new summer staff, and week one of camp.
Today’s Reading: 2 Samuel 23:24‐24:25, Acts 3:1‐26, Psalm 123:1‐4, Proverbs 16:21‐23
2 Samuel 24:24 But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God that cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
- The field was offered to David as a gift
- David insists on paying for the field
- David wants his offering to the Lord to cost him something
I serve in an incredible ministry. My desire is that each day is an offering to the Lord. I also truly enjoy what I do. In many ways, I think I would pay to do it. How do I live sacrificially in this context? I don’t have to pay to be part of camp. In many ways, I get to be part of camp.
Apply: I want to look for ways that I can “pay a price” in my ministry. I want to serve sacrificially.
How can you pay a price for your offering today?
