Daily Reading: 1 Kings 3:3-4:34 ESV, Acts 6:1-15 ESV, Psalm 126:1-6 ESV, Proverbs 16:26-27 ESV

Daily Verse: “And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.” (Acts 6:7 ESV)

PLETHUNO (4129): “To increase, abound, multiply.  Used transitively, denotes “to cause to increase, to multiply,” “(iniquity) shall abound” intransitively it denotes “to be multiplying,” Acts 6:1, “was multiplied.”[I]

Shall abound.

When God gets involved, things multiply.  Allowing the good Lord’s grace to fill your heart makes you more graceful and loving.  Becoming nicer multiplies your relationships; people want to surround themselves with people who make them feel loved and accepted.  Created for community, we all want to belong, with Jesus, everyone’s welcome.

Daily reading God’s word will change your life.  Letting the scriptures take root in your heart will expose the darkness, allowing light to lead your way.  As you grow closer to Jesus, He will impact your life positively, helping you realize how much He values you.  God doesn’t make junk; He makes treasure.

Multiply the treasure.

Share God’s love with the world.  Accept God’s promises as truth, then share them with everyone.  Watch in amazement as the good news spread and people begin to believe.  Overcome the heartache of this world with one act of love at a time.

Actions speak louder than words.  Jesus’ activity spread His message the most.  Healing the blind man, raising Lazarus from the dead, and exercising demons had people gasping in astonishment.  Christ mastered the unexpected, never doing what people thought He would do.  And we shouldn’t either.

When persecuted, respond in love.  In life’s imperfect moments, don’t take out your problems on someone else.  Monitor your words; if they don’t uplift and encourage, don’t say them.   Become a multiplier by imitating Jesus and acting with love.
