Daily Devotion: Spending from the Heart
Bible Reading: John 7:37-53
Key Verse: Verses 38 & 39 - “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (verse 38) “(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)" (verse 39)
Key Words: out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water
A wife can never be satisfied merely because her husband is a good provider. If he laid everything at her feet that money could buy, there would still be a lack of just exactly everything because he had delved into his purse instead of his heart. But many a happy woman gladly does without the fripperies of luxurious living, if she has not only the large bills, but the small change from the heart of the man she loves.
The analogy may be carried into all the relationships of our life. Never spend money from your purse for that which should be purchased with your very self. The Christian knows this spending of the heart is the natural – or should we say, the supernatural? – pouring out of the life that is released through the indwelling presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. He Himself said, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive….” (John 7:38, 39). Even the money that comes from the purse will have the effect of self that pours from the heart, if it is spent in the light and life of the Lordship of Christ.
What to do:
✞ Give from your heart, not just your “purse.”
