Ephesians 5:1,2

"Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." NIV

"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also that loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour." KJV

How often do we fail to sacrifice our own wants and needs for someone else? Are we guilty of turning the other way when we see someone in need because it is inconvenient or we don't have the time to give in love? The truth is, we don't have time not to show God's love because the world is in such great need of experiencing it through God's people. If we are children of God, we will be like Christ, and give of ourselves and our time to show love and care to those who need it. In so doing, our acts of love become a fragrant offering to our God, because we gave out of love for Him and for our fellowmen.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for our selfishness and lack of love toward those who are in need. Fill our hearts with compassion and love for those who need Your provision and use us to supply to them out of our abundance. Help us to not give thought to the time or amount of money it will take. But help us to give thought to the great sacrifice Christ made for us at the cross. In His name we pray, Amen.
