Generous Giving

The act of giving –

a freedom of choice.

It’s one of the ways,

God uses our voice.

Those who have plenty,

ought not have too much;

and those who have little,

gain His generous touch.

Our Jesus had all,

and gave it away;

so we each might live,

in heaven one day.

Just as our God gave,

so we ought to too.

A generous life,

grants freedom anew.

For out of our heart,

clear evidence flows.

As we have received,

we in turn bestow.

(Responding to 2 Corinthians 8:1-15)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that all that we have is a blessing from You.  May we hold loosely to the “stuff”, and cling desperately to You.  Forgive us for withholding generosity from You – be it our time, our talents, or our resources.  Guide us in how we are meant to give as You would give.  Please use our every offering to expand Your kingdom.  May many come to call You the Lord of their lives, as we learn to give our lives away.  All glory and honor to You, our generous and giving God.  Amen.

  1. Particularly uplifting this morning. I cling to what I have received and pray I in turn bestow it to my children now.

    Blessed day sister.
    Rick
