Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is generous. He longs for his children to be like him in this grace of generosity. Our place on earth is not to be hoarders of blessings, forgiveness, wealth, and opportunities. Following the lead of our Father in Heaven, we are to be conduits of his blessings, forgiveness, wealth, and opportunities. As we are generous like God, we trust God will ensure we are blessed and refreshed in the ways that will draw us into his character and more able to help others in the future (2 Corinthians 9:10-11).

My Prayer...

Thank you, Father, for all the great examples of generosity you have placed in my life. Whether rich or poor, these conduits of your grace have taught me that I can be more like you by being generous and gracious with others. Fill my heart with love and faith as I seek to be more gracious and generous with others in every area of my life. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
