Finding the joy in giving

Luke 12:48 ‘When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.’

The daily challenge- giving, ‘‘At nearly every traffic light, there is someone wanting something.’’ What are your thoughts when faced with someone who is in need or at least on the face of it, appears to be in need? Is there a deep skepticism? ‘‘How do I know this is real need?…..Rather give when I know for sure.’’ Who we give to pales almost into insignificance as opposed to how we give. God wants to know that you give joyfully and not reluctantly. Are you always counting to yourself- the worldly cost in giving? Is there a limit on how much to give? Good brothers and sisters, giving is an act of love and is really about trust in God. ‘‘More for God less for me,’’ Is a worldly equation. Rather, ‘‘I will give, knowing that this is the will of God and in giving, I am receiving.’’ Giving in time, in prayers for others, financially, in encouragement, in kindness….God is your provider, not you nor I. Bless you.
