My husband Justin says, “The more you trust God, the more generously you’ll give. And the more generously you give, the more you will trust God” and I know he’s right because I’ve lived the truth alongside him.
When we didn’t have any left over and we gave anyway and everything worked out.
When Christmas was going to be tight for us but tighter for someone else and so we helped out.
When we felt stupid giving back the money we’d just been given but did it anyway.
Every time Justin and I have chosen to give, we’ve been 100 percent certain it was the right choice. Nobody ever regrets generosity.
Tonight my small group read in Proverbs, “Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf… A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”
Last week I found this website (maybe you’ve seen it): ilikegiving.com. Awesomeness.
It’s full of stories of people who decided to live with open hands. And the stories are so, so good.
This one, “I Like Car” posted above, makes me cry every time I watch it.
