Your

Giving is an Act of Worship

Writing today along with the #Five Minute Friday group of writers who write for 5 minutes on a one word prompt. Today’s word is: Your

Definition of Your = belonging to or associated with any person in general.

So it is a case of what belongs to you is yours and what belongs to me is mine! Or I have heard it said, “what is mine is mine and what is yours is mine too”!!

But what if we didn’t associate things as being either ‘yours’ or ‘mine’, what if we ‘had all things in common’ like the early church did?

What if we took away the “y” and made it our?

What if when we confessed sin, it was a corporate act, we confess OUR sin. And what if when we worship, we do it corporately and it is OUR act of worship. What if we grieve with those who grieve, so that it is also OUR grief, what if we sit with the sick and weak, so that it becomes OUR weakness and vulnerability? What if we rejoice with those who are happy, so that it also becomes our joy? What if we carry one another’s burdens, so that we don’t feel the weight of them because they are OURS?

Less of the individualism and more of community, brotherhood, sisterhood, church, fellowship, unity, Jesus.

  1. “What if we took away the “y” and made it our?” and “Less of the individualism and more of community, brotherhood, sisterhood, church, fellowship, unity, Jesus”. This is what Jesus has called us to. A challenging and thought-provoking post.

  2. I hold tight unto my sins,
    the ones that I confess,
    and this is where my pride begins,
    to prove that I’m the best
    at rooting out the rats inside
    the soul that I keep hid;
    if opened up, what would betide?
    Would I then be ever-rid
    of ability to wear hair-shirt
    for all the world to see?
    Would rubbing up my face with dirt
    no longer be for me?
    And prithee, friend, please tell me how
    I still can be humbler than thou?
