Any successful venture requires investment with the intention of a solid and delight-filled return. The same goes for our time and energy (and dollar) investment in our children. As sportmoms we look forward to a solid return on our investment believing that our child will be much better at whatever they do than we ever did. We support them and we praise them in every new venture they embark upon.
“He who praises another enriches himself far more than he does the one praised. To praise is an investment in happiness.” George Matthew Adams, inspirational newspaper columnist
It was with great delight that God invested himself in us providing His Son as a sacrifice for our sin and His Word as a handbook for living - the way for us to know and follow Him. In response, the time and energy we invest into doing things His way will be not only enough for this world, but bring the ultimate payback - returning us to Himself for eternity!
“…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11 NIV
We may have difficulty experiencing “delight” as we in file our income tax returns. We may be very "delighted” with our investment in a new venture. The investment in our children may be offering "delightful" returns.
CHALLENGE: Today let’s take God at His Word and invest in it…He delights in offering a heavenly return that will be amazing!
Blessings…as you delightfully invest in Heavenly Returns.
