A little bit of guilt sets in when I see other people I know giving so generously and so easily. My parents, friends, and family members are people that automatically come to mind when I think of generous givers. I strive to be one of those people, even though I know I have a long ways to go. Our verse gives me some perspective. Giving is a gift from the Holy Spirit. Just like teaching, leading, serving and showing kindness, it is a spiritual gift. We should not however, hold one spiritual gift higher then another. The church is made up of all kinds of spiritual gifts that are equally important!
Questions for further thought:
1. What is your spiritual gift?
2. Do you have the gift of giving?
Challenge: Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to the things you can do with your gift.
