Yesterday, I highlighted the incredible generosity of ordinary people I’ve observed who are not rich (and may even be poor) yet give liberally to others out of a heart of love …
Then this morning I read this in the very next verses of my Bible reading and was brought to my knees in thanksgiving and worship…
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that though he was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8.9)
I had just finished reading that verse and another came to mind… “He [our Heavenly Father] did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also, along with Him graciously give us all things?!” (Romans 8.32)
Someone has framed it this way… G-R-A-C-E
What an absolute, mind-boggling, display of generosity! I’m incredibly grateful!! May my giving is some small way reflect both my Heavenly Father’s and my Savior’s!!
