You Can’t Outgive God

You Can’t Outgive God

When we talk about giving, most people automatically assume we’re talking about money. But, our money & possessions are some of the least things God has given us! Instead, if we think about the totality of what God has given us- life, breath, food for today, mercy, grace, forgiveness, and so much more- we have to realize that generous living isn’t about “stuff” or money. God has called us to give freely as we’ve been given instead of clenching our fists and hanging on tight- with our money, love, kindness, mercy, forgiveness, time, talent- everything we are & have. Try living generously and see what happens when you’re no longer a slave to greed, but free to live from an attitude of gratitude.
