Do you ever struggle with being generous?
No doubt we all have many reasons not to be generous. But what about the reasons FOR being generous? Do we regularly rehearse those to ourselves?
When we feel the tendency to withhold or withdraw welling up, the best thing to do is to fight it by actually giving something (funds, resources, time, affection) away.
These words of Jesus remind us of some reasons to be generous: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38
What a great verse to pray and model for our families!
So it’s time for another scripture prayer card!
If you’re new around here, what we are doing is providing a set of printable prayer cards to make praying scripture for your child easy. We are working our way through the alphabet, giving a virtue and related scripture for each letter.
This week’s letter is G for Generosity.
Have a great weekend…and let’s be generous :)
