Read 1 Timothy 6:17-19
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

Prayer: We see in this passage that our foundation for being generous is God’s generosity towards us. He has blessed us in order to bless others. Pray and reflect on the ways in which God has been generous to you and ask him to show you ways in which you might be generous to others.

    I love how God unites us by the power of His Spirit! I just finished writing a short summary to prepare for our orphan care ministry panal. I was able to reflect & rejoice because God has graciously given to me more than than I can ask or imagine. I never thought 12 years of being an only active parent on a single income could I say “God use me to be generous because you’ve been so generous to me!”. It’s when I surrendered to the privilege to give to the fatherless & oppressed that my joy became more & more abundant as a by product. As He continues to lavishly pour out His love I too can allow it to overflow from within. It’s where my joy is complete. FOCUSED ON HIM WHO BLESSES HAS CAUSED ME TO SEE HOW BLESSED I AM, SO NOW I CAN BE A BLESSING.

    God, I pray to show others generosity and for those who can show it to others. Please help those around us in need. Keep those who are traveling safe. For those that are sick lay a healing hand on them.
