Proverbs 11:24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
It’s so easy to be a taker, selfish and unconcerned, to excuse myself from giving and pretend that I don’t see the need or simply that I’m under too much personal obligation to do anything about anything. It is so easy to focus on my wants, my feelings, my dreams, my passion, my ministry even. Father you have called me to give freely, to give intelligently, to give relationally. I will give of my time, I will not be so busy that I don’t care to say hello or ask, how are you doing today? I will give of my talent, lending it towards the great chorus of witnesses, singing from the highest place I can, telling others our story. I will give money, my money, wisely and as a good manager of the wealth you have given me. Help me Lord to give all that you’ve called me to give. In Jesus name, amen.
