Am I being a miser? Am I stingy?

We have heard a lot. God is good and tells us His secrets. Are we keeping them to ourselves or giving them away? His generosity is well known. Are we sharing it?

The more of His goodness we give away the more we get. It just keeps coming back to us over and over again.

May we not shove the light under a bed. May we set it out so everyone can see.

No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a washtub or shoves it under the bed. No, you set it up on a lamp stand so those who enter the room can see their way. We’re not keeping secrets; we’re telling them. We’re not hiding things; we’re bringing everything out into the open. So be careful that you don’t become misers of what you hear. Generosity begets generosity. Stinginess impoverishes. Luke 8:16-18

Did I forget to do good?

July 8, 2012 3 comments

I really meant to but I just got overwhelmed with everything else on my to do list and all the crisis that came my way. Too many meetings and too many emails. It would have taken a lot (sacrifice) to have made time. I didn’t. Is that what God wants from me?

Nope, here is what pleases God.

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:15-17

Life that is truely life

January 19, 2011 Leave a comment

I need to go after God. I want to be rich in helping others. I want to be extravagantly generous, just like Him. I want to focus on building up treasures in Heaven that will last forever. I want to gain life that is truely life. Life that is focused on building wealth here is not life at all. His generosity will take care of what I need.

Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed. 1 Timothy 6:17-19
