Hello, Reading Friends. This is David Telbat. “Give your Life” is a story about a father, so it serves as a Father’s Day short story, but anyone could be in this character’s similar mindset. It shares an important principle and challenge that God has been opening my own mind to recently.
We live in a world that measures success by what we have, but God measures service by what we give. The world talks about taking what we can and keeping what we’ve got, but God talks about giving our lives. When we pause and realize that this life is merely preparation for the next, it helps us prioritize. Let’s pray that you and I give from our hearts, and not just from our excess. Have you given your life? Then you’ve given your all!
Give your Life

Frank Nettle drifted through Spokane’s massive convention center, admiring the various booths emphasizing world missions. He did his best to drown out the droning of atheist protestors outside who were upset that Christians were hosting a mission’s conference inside the city limits. Sighing at the declining state of the world, Frank focused on finding his son’s booth. Seth represented COIL, an international aid organization about which Frank was hoping to learn a little more.
