DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Today’s scripture reading:

Real love for others produces tangible actions: (1) hospitality to strangers; (2) empathy for those who are in prison and those who have been mistreated; (3) respect for your marriage vows; and (4) contentment with what you have. Make sure that your love runs deep enough to affect your hospitality, empathy, fidelity, and contentment.

How can we learn to be satisfied with what we have? Strive to live with less rather than desiring more; give away out of your abundance rather than accumulating more; relish what you have rather than resent what you’re missing. See God’s love expressed in what he has provided, and remember that money and possessions will all pass away. (NLT)

Hebrews 13:1-5 – Continue to love each other with true Christian love. Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it! Don’t forget about those in prison. Suffer with them as though you were there yourself. Share the sorrow of those being mistreated, as though you feel their pain in your own bodies.

Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

Stay away from the love of money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.”
