When God does something, He does it lavishly because He is generous - even to the point of personal pain. After all, He sacrificed to give us the greatest gift the world has ever seen! God has a giving heart and that is the kind of heart that we need, too.
Consider four thoughts, when it comes to a Christian's giving:
- Replace fear with faith - Mark 12:41-44; 2 Corinthians 8:1-4.
- Manage wisely - Luke 16:10.
- Deal with the "love of money" - 1 Timothy 6:10.
- Plan generosity.
