A Generous Spirit

One of the many things I love about God? He is so generous! Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and one of the marvelous attributes of our Savior is His generosity. I mean, come on, the Lord has been so generous to us (giving us comfort, the blessings of friendship, health, the beautiful world around us); does He not ask us to be the same with others? First Timothy chapter 6 says, "Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” Friend, I want to cultivate a generous spirit, a spirit that’s willing to share. Because, when we are generous with others – especially if others know that you are a follower of Jesus – it is a way of glorifying Him and His generous nature (it’s a way of proving the Gospel to them). When we choose to give, even in the smallest way, it makes a big difference for the people in our path, for us and for God’s glory.
