Day 254 | Saturday, 28 November 2020
Continuing the Thanksgiving theme for another day, I want to share with you a Hymn written by Jane Marshall in 1980. It is titled “What Gift Can We Bring”.
I used Psalm 65 on Thanksgiving Day. Here it is again only this time from The Message.
An Affirmation of Faith: Abundance and Blessings
(Genesis 1:11-12, 29; Leviticus 27:30; Philippians 4:12-13; 2 Corinthians 9:10-11)
“We believe that God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it." And it was so.
We believe that the earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.
And we believe God said, "See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food."
We affirm that all tithes from the land, whether the seed from the ground or the fruit from the tree, are the LORD'S; they are holy to the LORD.
We believe that in our Lord we can know what it is to have little, and we can know what it is to have plenty, because we can do all things through him who strengthens us.
We believe that he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply our seed for sowing and increase the harvest of our righteousness, and that we will be enriched in every way as we cultivate the fruit of the Spirit called generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us.”
