Family Devotion 2022-05-8 What God Wants Psalm 50:7 – 15 ESV (Together Read- aloud) \"Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me\" (verses 14-15). People came to God's court and said, \"You can't judge us. We have been offering You sacrifices.\" And God replied, \"I will not rebuke you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, which are continually before Me. I will not take a bull from your house, nor goats out of your folds\" (verses 8-9). He also said, \"If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness\" (v. 12). He was saying, \"When you bring Me these sacrifices, you are only giving to Me what I have already given to you.\" Think about that. When you put your offering on the plate, are you giving God something that isn't already His? Who gives you the strength to work? God. Who protects you to and from work? God. Who gives you the skills to work? God. Therefore, when we bring material offerings to Him (and He wants us to do this), we only bring what He already has given us. God wants us to provide him with what He has not given us: \"Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High\" (v. 14). The sacrifices God wants most from us originate in our hearts – calling upon Him, thanking Him, and obeying Him. Bring Him thanksgiving and praise. God does not give us thanksgiving and says, \"Give it back to Me.\" No, He waits for us to praise Him. Bring to Him obedience: \"Pay your vows to the Most High\" (v. 14). Bring to Him prayer: \"Call upon Me in the day of trouble\" (v.15). When we bring these sacrifices, we glorify the Lord. –– Warren Wiersbe's – A Daily Walk Through the Psalms, 2011, pg 133. Reflection: God wants your sacrifices to be from the heart. So often, we receive from Him without returning thanks and praise. Do you want to bring glory to God on this day? Thank Him for what He is doing for you. Obey His Word. Bring your problems to Him. These are all opportunities He can use to bring glory to Himself. God Himself is Judge. To Praise Him and Pray: Psalm 50 – Christian Song with Lyrics 7

Marriage: 6 Gospel Commitments Every Couple Needs to Make When you say “I do,” you begin the journey of a lifetime― and you have dreams of that journey being perfect. But it won’t take long for expectations of the perfect marriage to fade away in the struggles of everyday life. A long-term, vibrant marriage needs to be grounded in something sturdier than romance―it needs the life-changing power of the gospel. In this rebranded edition of What Did You Expect? Popular author and pastor Paul David Tripp encourages couples to make six biblical commitments to the Lord and to one another. These commitments, which include a lifestyle of confession and forgiveness, building trust, and appreciating differences, will equip couples to cultivate thriving, joy- filled marriages built on Christ. Contact: Daniel and Leong Ha Requirements: In English Suitable for couple Parenting with words of grace How you speak to your kids today will impact your relationship with them tomorrow. As a parent, your words are powerful. What you say and how you say it has the potential to either invite your children into deeper relationship with you or push them away. What's more, in a very real sense, your words represent--or misrepresent--God's words to his children-- meaning they have the power to shape how your children view their heavenly Father. Offering practical guidance for grace-filled communication in the midst of the craziness of everyday life, this accessible guide will help you speak in ways that reflect the grace God has shown to you in the gospel.
