“Keep open house; be generous with your lives.” ~~Jesus

Jesus wants us to radically open. He links this to being generous. Everything we are belongs to our Father. Jesus knows that by opening up to others, we’ll prompt people to open up with God. They will see this generous Father we have in heaven.Generosity They will see, through our openness about God how wonderfully generous he is. What a loving Father He is.

This is core to the new agreement with God. Nothing is be hidden. Nothing is to be closed. Transparency is required. Jesus demands it.

“Keep open house; be generous with your lives.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:14-16 The Message)

    All of these things sound so easy on the surface, but when I try to apply them to my life, sometimes it’s much harder than it seems. Thanks for a wonderful reminder of God’s Word on these attributes.

      I know what you mean. I write them because I need to hear them. Be blessed.
