— Proverbs 25:13
I’m not sure where you are located, but it’s been blistering hot where I am. Anything cool and refreshing sounds incredibly wonderful. If you’ve ever worked a harvest and gotten the dust, plant fragments, and sweat up under your shirt, you know how refreshing a cool glass of water is to your parched throat and a cold shower is for your sticky body. But God says that when we are trustworthy messengers for each other and for him, it is even better refreshment than a cool drink on a hot, tiring day. So how have you been doing with the Master’s message lately? How committed are you to sharing his love, telling others of his grace, or demonstrating his kindness? Let’s get busy being the coolness of snow at harvest time for our Lord and Master by blessing others with the good news of his love and grace!
Forgive me, heavenly Father, when I am untrustworthy with your message, ashamed of showing my allegiance to you, or not excited about sharing your good news. Give me the courage and wisdom to demonstrate and proclaim your love, mercy, grace, and character to those around me. May my words and actions today bring you refreshment and glory! In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
