Generosity Was Always God’s Idea

Genesis 1:27-28 So God created humans in his own image. He created them to be like himself. He created them male and female. God blessed them and said to them, “Have many children. Fill the earth and take control of it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the air. Rule over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

We love to be around generous people, you and I. We really do. But let’s put the shoe on the other foot just for a moment and ask ourselves, “How generous are we?”

Let me ask this: what was the very last act of creation? What was the very last thing that God did on the sixth day, before He rested on the seventh day to enjoy all that He’d created?

Most people would answer that the last act of creation was to create Adam and Eve, to create humanity – God’s crowning achievement. And if that’s your answer too, then sorry to disappoint you but it’s the wrong answer.

God did one more thing before He was finished. God did one other thing, before He rested. Do you know what it was?

Genesis 1:27-28 So God created humans in his own image. He created them to be like himself. He created them male and female. God blessed them and said to them, “Have many children. Fill the earth and take control of it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the air. Rule over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

What was that one last thing that He did before He rested? He gave all of creation away. He gave it to Adam and Eve, to you and me. He blessed them and us with all that He had made.

These days, people seem to be in it for themselves, whatever “it” happens to be. Generosity seems to be an old-fashioned concept. Well, in a sense it is a very old concept. The first act of generosity happened precisely six days after the beginning of time. It was God’s idea.

How generous are you?

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