Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it.
amen! thank you lord for ALL YOU GAVE! with all this we can LOVE YOU as we LOVE EVERYONE AROUND US! Peter wrote this to the early church (vv. 8-10): "Love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless-cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if WORDS, let it be GOD'S words; if HELP, let it be GOD'S hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything-encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!" as we give, the act and everything about it is not about US and our GOODNESS, it's about GOD and HIS PROVISION, GENEROSITY, health, love, encouragement, blessings - it's HIS GIFTS, not ours. thank you lord, for setting our perspective right!
