Offering for October 16, 2021

Pioneer Operating Budget

Jesus was en route to Jerusalem when He heard ten lepers shouting “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke 17:13

Christ acknowledged their request and told them to show themselves to the priest. As they were walking away, they noticed Jesus had already healed their leprosy. Their skin was soft and silky. No trace of disease remained.

Only one of the former lepers turned around and returned to honor Jesus for the miracle. Often, we are the recipients of God’s grace. We pray, we plead; we come before the Lord with our petitions. When God grants us His grace, we may forget to thank the Lord for His mercies.

There are many ways of thanking the Lord. One way is by giving Him a thank offering. When a child is born in good health, some give a thank offering to express gratitude to the Lord. A successful surgery can be an opportunity to give a thank offering to Jesus, the Great Physician. When a child returns home after having wandered away, we rejoice. In the story of the prodigal son, the father held a feast thanking the Lord for the return of his son.

Today, we can honor our Lord for His many gifts.

We can thank Him for His grace, for His protection, and His love toward us. “And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer it at your own will.” Leviticus 22:29
