Light for My Path Daily Devotion
[Jesus said] “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Luke 12:32-34 ESV)
Hymn ELH 468:1-2 All Depends on Our Possessing
All depends on our possessing
God’s abundant grace and blessing,
Though all earthly wealth depart.
He who trusts with faith unshaken
In his God is not forsaken
And e’er keep a dauntless heart.
He who hitherto hath fed me
And to many joys hath led me,
Is and ever shall be mine.
He who did so gently school me,
He who still doth guide and rule me,
Will remain my Help divine.
Jesus, my Savior, help me always to remember where my true treasure lies: not in earthly things, but in Your Word of promise and forgiveness. Amen.
