Food for thought
Deal bountifully with your servant that I may live and keep your word.
Found this prayer in the psalms. I am sure we all like praying "Deal bountifully with your servant", but the next bit really struck me. Why do we actually want God to deal bountifully with us? Usually, for my ease and comfort. The true reason we should pray that prayer is in the next bit, "...that I may live and keep your word". May God help us all to have that aim and desire.
