Proverbs 21:25-26 

 

Verse of the day:

Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give! (Proverbs 21:26)


Winston Churchill once said, “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” Jesus was certainly the ultimate example of a life poured out. Everything that He had was given and multiplied. Let’s pray today for God to expand our generosity in three areas…

 

 

Heavenly father, teach us to be generous with our time. May the time we spend with others be wisely spent and graciously offered to those in need. Teach us to be generous with our finances. May our maturity as financial managers expand, and may that growth spur on exuberant generosity like never before. Teach us to be generous with our talents. The best belongs to you. Open doors for ministry opportunity, and if necessary, give us the determination to build the opportunities that don’t currently exist. Teach us to give in secret, and teach us to give in sacrifice.

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:7 // Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
