Gratitude Grows through Generosity

What God grants as seed,

when tended in love,

gives meals to many,

a gift from above.

For what we’re given,

is not meant to keep.

All for the sharing,

for feeding His sheep.

The miracle found,

in giving away,

is what is returned,

as we choose to obey.

Rich in His blessings,

aware of His grace,

heart full of praises,

there’s no greater place.

(Responding to 2 Corinthians 9:10-15)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You so much for the countless blessings and abundant gifts that we have been given in You.  First and foremost, thank You Jesus, for exchanging Your life for ours, so that we have the hope to hold that we will one day dwell with You in heaven forever!  Thank You too, for sending Your Spirit to dwell in us, as our Comfort, our Companion, our Grace and our Guide.  Forgive me for not always being quick to share the blessings that I have been given.  Teach me to be ever aware of how You are leading me to love like You.  May many come to know Your comfort and provision as they come to call You their personal Prince of Peace.  Amen.

  1. God’s economy is different than ours, isn’t it? It’s pretty much counter-intuitive to give as He did… nice one.

  2. This made me feel so warm inside. I’m so grateful to be warapped up in his love and blessings!!
