Sow Generously, Reap Generously!

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103:2) 

Do you have eyesight? It's a gift. Do you have a good mind? It's a gift. Do you have leadership abilities that cause others to follow? A good education? These are all gifts. Has God given you a family? Has He given you sufficient clothes? . . . These are all gifts from God's hand. Reflect on His numerous gifts to you. It will increase your joy. . . . 

Then remind yourself of God's promises regarding generosity. God promises if you sow bountifully, you will reap bountifully. So give! Give abundantly! Even extravagant giving is honored by God. I've never known anyone who went bad because he or she was too generous. Remind yourself of His promises regarding generosity and start giving! 

Don't be afraid of out-giving. It is absolutely impossible to do that. 

Living Above the Level of Mediocrity 

Living generously is definitely possible friends! Yes, it can happen for every single one of us! Do we have to be wealthy to be generous? Do we have all the resources at our disposal? Do we have to be extremely skilled or talented? The answer to those questions is. . . . NO! All we need is to be driven and passionate about the way we live our own lives. 

Living generously involves having a selfless spirit. Living your life in service to others at whatever capacity God has you in is living generously and above the level of mediocrity. My dear friends, you reap what you sow. You sow little, you reap little. You sow alot, you reap alot. What makes the whole issue of generosity really funny is that we can invest ourselves generously in one way and God can choose to be generous to us in a manner totally unrelated to the way we have been generous. 

Ready to live a generous life? Then start giving of yourself generously! 

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!. . . . :-).
