Give thanks. Give time. Give truth.
Give peace. Give hope. Give help.
Give a smile. Give a hug. Give a hand.
Give kindness. Give comfort. Give compassion.
Give to someone you know. Give to someone you don’t know. Give to those God knows.
Give hospitality. Give community. Give stability.
Give because you want to, not because you have to. Give without expecting anything in return.
Give dignity. Give respect. Give purpose.
Give to the poor, the wounded, the struggling, the homeless, the hurting.
Give to the lonely, the heartbroken, the desolate, the defeated and the discouraged.
Give hope. Give mercy. Give forgiveness.
Give prayerfully. Give purposefully.
Give joyfully. Give generously.
Give because you have been given.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
- How can you make someone’s life better today as you give from the heart with your tangible or intangible giving?
- What have you been holding back or holding on to that you need to give to someone or some organization for good?
- What has someone given you that blessed you when you needed it?
- What has God given you?
You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 2 Corinthians 9:11-13 NIV
Remember…Life is Better When It’s Full – Joy-full, Thank-full, Purpose-full and Friend-full! ™
