But the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat. You shall do the same with your vineyard, and with your olive orchard. (Exodus 23:11 NRSV)
A teacher was administering an achievement test to David, a precocious six-year-old. The teacher began by asking him when his birthday was. "February 20," was his quick response. Next the teacher asked him, "What year, David?" David looked at the teacher quizzically at first and then hit upon the obvious answer. "EVERY year," he said.
Annual celebrations, like birthdays, remind us of the blessings God gives us with each passing year.
What blessings has God touched your life with?
God of all my years, thank you for the ways you have blessed my life. May I take those blessings and share them with others. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
