15 Days on Giving

October 30 – 1 Kings 18:25-29

It is almost comical to consider the lengths the prophets of Baal went to prove they were right. Elijah could not help but chastise their fruitless efforts. It is very easy to succumb to the temptation of spending our money only to please ourselves. God requires his children to focus on the eternal. To illustrate, Jesus shared a parable with his disciples. Read Luke 12:19-21. Focusing your time and energy on the gods of this world is foolish.
