3. Generosity is contagious.
Extravagant acts of generosity can amaze and startle the world. When others see certain acts of generosity, they are inspired to replicate.
On several occasions, our church has entered the realm of contagious giving. This has occurred because someone would give extravagantly. Maybe it would be the children or the poorest among us. We have also seen the wealthy give extravagant gifts.
Generosity is no respecter of persons. It inspires everyone to go higher, give sacrificially and develop a lifestyle of giving. Developing generosity is about looking for people, places and things to share our time, talents and resources.
Isaiah 32:8 … But a generous man devises generous things, and by generosity he shall stand. Look at that. A generous man devises generous things. This means that we are shrewd in discovering, planning and sharing our wealth and energy with the world.
Let’s learn to develop a generous spirit. Just think what a difference we can make!
I think we should consider these questions:
Is generosity normal for me?
Where do I need to develop generosity?
I would love for you to leave a comment and/or share stories of your own generosity.
