Do you believe that God desires you to live a rich, full and abundant life? Does He really want you to enjoy life? What does it mean to live the abundant life Jesus talks about? Jesus tells us that we are created to love God and to love others. He desires us to take care of each other's needs. He desires us to be generous with our possessions and finances. If we hoard these things for ourselves, they become idols and rob us of the joy God intends for us. If you want to experience a more abundant life, be generous with what God has given you.
Questions for further thought:
1. Is generosity a value for you?
2. Who/what can benefit from your generosity?
Challenge: We can find joy in giving (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). God delights in blessing us, so we should delight in blessing others with those gifts from God. Who can you bless today?
