On the surface, it makes no sense. But I’ve experienced it to be true. Giving is more fulfilling than receiving. There’s some intangible but very real thing that happens in our hearts when we give of ourselves. It’s like God smiles and it makes our hearts smile too.
“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25
Fear says that if we give, we won’t have enough. Faith says, God is enough and will provide.
I don’t know what generosity looks like in your life. But I do know that God calls us to be generous. Because that is his heart. Because it requires us to trust Him. And because it is love in action which changes the world. Oh, and He promises that it will refresh your soul as well.
So, are you ready to say a bold generous prayer today? “God, I’m willing to be used by you to refresh someone today. Will you show me the way? I trust you to provide through me and for me today.”
It could be a prayer that will change someone’s life today. Including your own. – Sandi
