At a morning service earlier this year, Tim used the word lavished, and used the picture of putting butter on toast. It was not a picture of frugality.
Definition – Bestow or cover in generous or extravagant quantities.
Bible verse – 1 John 3 v1 – See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Thought: I’m sure that you can picture toast that is covered in butter, a picture of an extreme. Now consider what God has done for us, perhaps today’s word should be adopted, because that is the lavish gift of God.
Prayer: To be on the receiving end of your lavish love and grace, help us to share this with the people we meet today and always. Amen.
