A Generous Man





When you give from the heart, something happens.

Something wonderful.

In a way that cannot be fully explained, the one giving gains as well as the one who is receiving.

There is the satisfaction of knowing that what is given is done in love and that it will bring joy as it is accepted by another.

Apart from that, the one who is obtaining what is given is likely to be grateful, spurring charity in their own hearts.

As one gives to others, God is able to provide even more to be given away.

It is a enduring cycle of receiving and giving.

What has God given you to give away?

Your time?

Your kindness?

Your thoughtfulness?

What does He want you to give?


One man gives freely, yet gains even more;
    another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.

 A generous man will prosper;
    he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

–Proverbs 11:24-25

    I’m blessed to be married to a woman whose generosity has stretched my own. The only funds we’re sure of keeping are those we give away through faith in the Lord.

    By contrast, I spoke last fall with a young man who was earning under $30,000 per year. He mentioned that he’d been surprised to learn that the previous year, his charitable contributions had been more than those itemized by a famous politician whose name you’d know.

    I agree that we get to “keep” the ones we give away through faith!
