This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Luke 6:38 (ESV)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Love has been in the air all week, and it is especially in the air today. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to increase your spiritual bank account by extending random acts of kindness beyond your inner circle.
We can all relate to the rewarding feeling of making actual deposits into our checking or savings account. Making little deposits of love and kindness can feel just as rewarding, but on a completely different level.
Your spiritual bank account, as I call it, tallies all of the sacrifices you make for loved ones, your anonymous giving, and the selfless acts in general that you offer to others. With your spiritual bank account, you can’t see a daily ledger, but the Scriptures teach you that God knows your daily balance.
He knew when you were still in your mother’s womb, He knows when you sit and when you stand, and He even knows the number of hairs on your head. Surely He knows each time you make a deposit in the life of another.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about the time when Abraham’s servant approached Rebekah for a drink of water. Not only did Rebekah make a trip to the well for him, but she made several more trips to provide water for his camels. With each trip, she was making another deposit. Rebekah’s selfless disposition led her from being a servant girl to a woman with many servants.
The same way that God responded to Rebekah’s goodness is the same way He will respond to yours, so hold onto these words: “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over…” Luke 6:38 (ESV)
So this Valentine’s Day, make a deposit.
