A generous giver is one who gives with a joyful attitude and a compassionate heart. Giving is the channel through which God’s love, compassion, and generosity can flow through us. When we give, we become more of who God designed us to be. Created in God’s image, we are made to live in connection and community with others and to share a portion of what we have with others. Simply put, giving changes the lives of not only those who receive, but also those who give.
We see that the miracle of abundance begins with a boy who generously shares five loaves of bread and two fish. Through this expression of generosity, over 5,000 are fed. [John 6:1-14]
Generosity is an instrument of God’s reconciliation and inclusion. Because generosity is God’s antidote to the greed and hoarding that lead to scarcity, it is the means by which God brings forth the abundant life that Jesus promises.
