Deuteronomy 4:9, Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. 10 Remember the day you stood before the Lord your God at Horeb, when He said to me, “Assemble the people before Me to hear My words so that they may learn to revere Me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children.”

2 Corinthians 9:6, Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

At Cottonwood Creek, I’ve been teaching a series entitled, “Building A Great Life God’s Way!”  This week’s thought on building a great life is that we need to Build a Life of Remembrance. That word remember means “to recall to mind, think of again, or be aware of.”  Genuine faith requires you to remember that you can never out give God.

Truthfully, if God never gave us another thing, He’s already given us more than we deserve. Remember the words of Jesus when He said, “For God so loved the world, He gave His one and only Son.” That was enough, but He still gives even more.

The apostle Paul said, “Remember this” (there is that word remember again)…he said, “Remember this…God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, you would have everything you need to abound in every good work.”

Paul says, remember, that if you are generous and giving to others in every good work, God promises you will always have enough for your own needs and for the needs of others.

As you make your journey today, remember… “you can never out give God!”

Remember that…and have a blessed day!
