My Friday Conviction

…”Most of us, at one time or another, focus on the gifts rather than on the Giver. That’s when we regress in our contentment and joy and we quench the Spirit’s transforming work within us, because we are focusing on the wrong things. That may be why the Lord sometimes limits His gift-giving to us—so we do not stumble over the gifts and fall away from Him.”

I mean wow. Definitely convicting and humbling. I’m praying that I can focus more on the Giver than on what I am wanting to receive. Focus on the blessings rather than living in discontentment.

Let’s live from the inside out!

This is from an online passage from Got Questions Ministries, an online ministry (whoever wrote this did an outstanding job).
