“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth…” - (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
“…faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul…” (Deuteronomy 11:13)
Thought for the day:
Every once in a while, a hymn will say it all. Perhaps this is one of those hymns.
Give of your best to the Master; Give of the strength of your youth; Throw your soul’s fresh, glowing ardor
Into the battle for truth. Jesus has set the example, Dauntless was He, young and brave; Give Him your loyal devotion; Give Him the best that you have.
Give of your best to the Master; Give of the strength of your youth; Clad in salvation’s full armor,
Join in the battle for truth.
Give of your best to the Master; Give Him first place in your heart;
Give Him first place in your service; Consecrate every part. Give, and to you will be given;
God His beloved Son gave; Gratefully seeking to serve Him, Give Him the best that you have.
Give of your best to the Master; Naught else is worthy His love; He gave Himself for your ransom,
Gave up His glory above. Laid down His life without murmur, You from sin’s ruin to save;
Give Him your heart’s adoration; Give Him the best that you have.
Prayer for the day:
Dear Lord, you have given me your all. Thank you! Help me to give my best to You. Amen.
