Deuteronomy 26:16-27:26; Amos 1:1-2:16; Luke 13:22-35

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:6, NKJV

All planting but no watering leads to a desert. All watering but no planting leads to a flood. All our work without God’s blessing is a waste of time. There is a balance in God’s service: We do our part—whatever God has enabled us for, then God brings the blessing. We are told to be faithful in our calling (see 4:2), and then to let God do the wooing and winning. It is His work, after all, and we are merely workers together with Him. —N. C. Funston

I’ll go where You want me to go, dear Lord, Over mountain, or plain, or sea. I’ll say what You want me to say, dear Lord. I’ll be what You want me to be. —Mary Brown
