Having a Generous Spirit

Have you made any resolutions for the new year? How are you doing with them? I know sometimes it's easy for us to make goals like these completely unattainable, and sometimes we get so busy that we just plain forget about them.  I've made a few for this year but the one I hope I can reach and not forget about is to be more generous.

That's my goal - to be more generous.  More generous with my time, more generous with my words and more generous with my finances.  Now you may be thinking to yourself, "Time and words I've got plenty of but money - that's a different story!"  This is what I've learned recently about my finances - God has given me exactly what I need for my daily living and exactly what I need to give to others. Some months that amount may be one thing and some months it may be something else. Either way, God has made us to be generous just as He is generous.

Let me challenge you this way - ask God how he would have you be generous with your finances this month. Ask where he would like you to give and then give with all your heart. If you would like to learn more about organizations that need people just like you please drop me a line.
