You are Invited

I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labour. John 4:38

Today you are invited to consider how you feel when you take over someone else’s work. Are you prepared to look for the good in what they have done and build on their foundation, or are you keen to cast it aside and start again? How much credit do you give them? How can you encourage them as they hand over their hard work to you? And how do you feel when you are the one handing over and you have to step aside? Which is easier? What is God saying to you at this time? How will it affect your attitude to those who have gone before you – and to those who come after you?

May God bless you as you step forward – or step back – to follow His commands today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
