Daily D – Numbers 20:8
Numbers 20:8 “You and Aaron must take the staff and assemble the entire community. As the people watch, speak to the rock over there, and it will pour out its water. You will provide enough water from the rock to satisfy the whole community and their livestock.” (NLT)
Psalm 50:23 “But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.” (NLT)
God’s simple instructions produce extravagant results. Let’s remember who the Giver of All Good Things is and that it is not us. Let’s thank God for his every good and perfect gift.
Thanksgiving is a sacrifice because it places our focus where it belongs. Thanksgiving prevents us from confusing who we are and what we do from who God is and what he does.
This is a good Sunday lesson to last us all week long.
I will follow God’s instructions and thank him for all he does.
Our Father, thank you for your every good and perfect gift. You enrich our lives with good things. This is a good day to begin developing the habitual lifestyle of gratitude. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
