信靠和行善 Trust, Do, and Then…
“你当倚靠耶和华而行善， 住在地上，以他的信实为粮；” 诗篇 37:3
Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. P S A L M 3 7 : 3
Trust in the Lord. This was the Lord’s number one message to his people. He repeated it over and over again. Trust in the Lord, lean not on your own understanding, rely upon your God. Let him restore you, empower you, and sustain you. Do good. This was the Lord’s second message to his people. Trusting in the Lord led to an overflow of care for others. Doing good in life is acommand, but it is actually more of a response too. When people trust God, they are so dramatically changed by his love that they learn to live in God’s patterns.
Then, as people trust the Lord and do good, the Lord gives blessing. Communities and nations that learn to do these things become safe and productively fruitful places. Trust in the Lord, do good, and then watch God bless all that is around you.
Jesus, help me to do these two things today. Help me trust you with whatever is ahead, with whatever is pressing on my mind and heart. And help me to put others first in all that I do. Amen.
Practice serving people all day long through acts of politeness and kindness. Trust that the Lord will bless you and others as you serve.
