Outrageous, sacrificial generosity is a learned, living out exercise that opens the flood gates of abundant blessing. When you sit in generosity, when it becomes a part of your everyday, God shows up and meets that need too. Any generosity that comes from Jeff and I first comes from God. We are simply His hands, His vessel.
I would challenge anyone who wants to see God show up in their lives. Make the decision to be generous every week for a year. Give of themselves, of their time, of their money, at least once every week. Without fail God shows up. Not only does He place the need in front of me but He has provided to meet that need. I'm not stretching the truth. I am simply stating fact. God is generous.
While we have grown immensely in our walk with the Lord, it is in giving that I feel I have grown the most. I am above all a selfish creature. Giving kicks selfishness to the curb and sometimes, to the middle of a busy street to get crushed by passing trucks. A crushed self gives God so much more to work with. Less of me and more of Him.
