Today’s Scripture Selection: Revelation 3:17

“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.  But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.”

You may or may not think of yourself as “needy.”

But I believe we are all – to one extent or another.

The greatest thing we can do, in terms of life and growth, is to recognize our need for God.  And, when we humbly and openly acknowledge that need, I believe God is always there to respond.

God may not respond as we expect.  In fact, I suspect, he often does not.  But God does respond.

So, whether your bank account or belly if full is only part of the picture.

I think that along with our need for

  • Purpose
  • Relationship
  • Love
  • Learning
  • Health
  • Sustenance
  • Growth
  • Others
  • And more

We need, most of all, God.  And I believe you find that relationship in the deepest way through a relationship with Christ.

So, go ahead.  Admit it.  You are needy.  So am I.

And, isn’t wonderful that God fills that need?

Prayer: Lord, fill me up, that I may pour out your love to others.  AMEN.
