“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.” (1 Chronicles 29:14)
God gives us excess to be able to give. He is the ultimate giver, He gave His Son. All we have is His, lets hold on to it knowing that He may have uses for it elsewhere, and be faithful as stewards of all He has given us.
Just as he is generous, so He calls us to reflect His nature. As we spend time with Him and are obedient to His word and promptings we begin to be shaped and moulded by His character.
We ought to be known for our generosity just as He is. We are merely a reflection of His nature and character as we are transformed into His image.
Quick Prayer. “Help me to hold on loosely to all that is yours anyway.” Amen
