A Profitable Fragrance

Over the past few days I’ve spent many hours praying for friends like you who pray for us.  You see, I was praying while I was writing to invite friends to partner with us through giving to our work.  Like the Apostle Paul, who wrote a financial appeal to his friends in Philippi, I was not seeking the gift itself.  I was seeking “the profit which increases to your account.” (Philippians 4:17)   And, I was praying that those gifts would become like the gift that the Philippians sent: “a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God”.  (Philippians 4:18)  And now I pray that all of the many gifts that we each give this month will have that fragrance that God so loves. 
Prayer update:   Thank you for praying for my grand-parenting.  What pleasant answers to prayer!  There’s nothing like having your grandsons snuggling up to read with you, or giggling uncontrollably as you play!
