such a great chapter on God's faithfulness and what our attitude should be as a result. One of thankfulness overflowing to an attitude of giving.

definitely. One thing I want to incorporate into family prayer time is the remembering of things that God has done in the past, and thanking Him for them, resting on His promises to never leave us in the midst of whatever we're going through. It's not that God has forgotten, but we honor Him when we connect His working power in the past to His undending faithfulness.

"The LORD has declared today that you are his people,his own special treasure,just as he promised,and that you must obey all his commands.And if you do,he will make you greater than any other nation.Then you will receive praise, honor,and renown.You will be a nation that is holy to the LORD your God,just as he promised."v 18-19

It is wonderful to know that we are special to God,it is so good to feel special,but there are many people that don't know God and don't know how good it is to feel special,it's our job to be God's 'fishers for men' and teach others about him so that they can feel special to.

"given it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, according to all you commanded."
It's neat how God sets up a system to care for these special people. No one is forgotten. So when we give towards our pastor's salaries, and show care for them, I'm sure the Lord is pleased. Lately quite a few women have become widows. It's great to see how God tenderly cares for their needs here. And He doesn't change.
