Extravagant Generosity – Day 32

extravagant-generosityReading:
‘They voluntarily gave according to their means, and even beyond their means, begging us earnestly for the privilege of sharing in this ministry to the saints.’ (2 Corinthians 8 v. 3 – 4)

Reflection:
Those who practice Extravagant Generosity have a God-given vision and faith to plant seeds for trees whose shade they will never see.
How have those who have come before you in your family, community and church paved an easier road for you?
How have you paved the road for those who follow?

Prayer:
Help us put aside defensiveness and self-deception
to honestly look at our giving
through Your eyes,
O Lord.
AMEN.

Challenge:
Think about the greatest gift you have ever received from being a follower of Christ, and from life in your congregation.
And then think about the greatest contribution you have ever made to the purposes of Christ and to your congregation.
What do you want your legacy to be?
