Generosity

Luke 6:38 Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands-more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you."

Have you ever felt led to give something away, to be generous to that person over there? But something, something was holding you back.

It’s great being around generous people, isn’t it? But as much as we love being the beneficiaries of someone else’s generosity, when the shoe’s on the other foot, we can be a bit tight with our cash.

And the reason we hold back is that we think it’s a zero-sum game. If I take this money out of my pocket and give it to that person, they’ll have more and I’ll have less. What we forget is that God blesses generosity. What we forget is that with God’s blessing in play, generosity anything but, a zero-sum game.

Luke 6:38 Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands-more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you.”

I’m sure we can both see how incredibly generous God’s been to us. No matter how little we may appear to have, actually He’s given each one of us so much. And He wants us to be generous with the blessings He’s showered on us.

Generosity, at least the sort that Jesus talks about, is meant to go around, it’s meant to overflow, like a river of blessing in flood. And here’s the thing: when we let go, when we stop holding onto the blessing, when we give away what God has given us, generously and sacrificially, God will bless us again and again. Listen:

The way you give to others is the way God will give to you.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
