God: is ready to put His mark on us….
Malachi 3:16-17 (KJV) “Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and theLord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him”.
Sometimes you get to do stuff/favor for individuals and it ultimately leaves a very bad and nasty taste in your mouth; it’s evident that some folks love to believe that what is done freely is owed to them and it can be compared to when someone takes advantage of you.
They, as the older folks would say, “take you for granted”; it’s not a nice feeling. But the thing is, if we as humans can feel chafed at being used or taken for granted, imagine what it is for our Father when He does it without a passing though, but just because He loves us and we don’t take the time to acknowledge His grace.
But today is a time of reflection for us; God isn’t in a class with us and He doesn’t have to, but He wants to right now because He is love; if you are loved and you know anything about honor, respect Him for who HE is.
Honorable, gracious, loving, merciful and a kind compassion God. Honor Him and see Him elevate you as a jewel in His sight….
