I vividly recall the day I began praying to be more generous. After assessing my spiritual life, I discovered I could use improvement in this area. So every day I asked God for opportunities to give. I prayed for open eyes and an open heart that would recognize the needs of others. Immediately God began to fine-tune my senses. Jim and I have been blessed to minister to many people through teaching, speaking, and writing. And we also love to privately and quietly assist when we can.
The amazing results are that people have heard the Good News of Jesus Christ, people have been helped, and some people have accepted Christ as their Savior! On top of those wonderful blessings, the Lord has honored our commitment to Him in countless ways.
I encourage you to be generous with your gifts, your time, and your faith. And watch what God does through you!
Father, You have blessed me so much. As I share with others, may the spotlight be on You so that You get the recognition and thanks. Amen.
