Living Generously!

There is no stingy person who was truly happy. No generous person is ever grumpy or sad. I guess there is a reason why the miserly scrooge is seen as grouchy and the giving Santa is a jolly good fella.

If you give,you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over,whatever measure you use in giving-large or small-it will be used to measure what is given back to you. Luke 6:38

For someone like me, I  used to be very stingy with pieces of stuff because I thought that the more you hold on to things the more you will have . I didn’t know that according to scriptures,  there is a great blessing that accompanies being generous. 

Not only in finances alone but in every area of life, living generously in terms of everything that we have been given. I learnt to be a more generous person by watching my husband over the years lived out Luke 6:38. I am still a working progress no doubts 😀

I have learnt  that there is a link between Joyful living and generosity. Being generous  gives us joy and the joy well feel prompts us to be generous. You feel honored to be the cause of another’s happiness, In any form whatsoever!

Like I said earlier, living generously does not come naturally for most of us, at least I can say that for myself, I learnt it through a series of stretching experiences, BTW the stretching is still ongoing.

When we live a life of generosity, we are going a step forward to reflect the generous nature of our creator-God. We show forth the extravagance of God, in whom all things consist.

The greatest form of generosity is to give of ourselves- God demonstrated this by giving himself up for us- In Christ. when we really absorb this truth we will experience life with an overflow of joy and gratitude and our uncontainable joy will leave us no choice but to live generously.
