Daily Verse: “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.” Prov. 11:24
“Hold it all loosely,” Ron often says. Clinging to the things of this world, the temporary material items that will perish does no good. But if we learn to hold them loosely, becoming generous with our possessions, we’ll find abundance.
“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.” 2 Cor. 9:7
God doesn’t bless us so we can hoard possessions but that we can share them generously with others. Not only should we practice generosity, but our heart posture also matters. Giving cheerfully pleases God and opens the door for Him to pour more blessings into our lives.
“You can’t outgive God,” I say often. Try outdoing the Lord in generosity; without a doubt, you will fail. But the blessings you receive will make you want to give more.
Become generous with God’s blessings; undoubtedly, you become richer in ways you can’t imagine.
Lord, forgive us for clinging to material things. Give us a generous and cheerful heart, sharing our blessings with others. Help us hold the things of this world loosely as we pursue You, allowing Your goodness to flow through us to others. IJNIP. Amen
