Day 3: Generosity
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
The very essence of God is generosity. “For God so loved the world that He gave ….” Giving is what our Heavenly Father is all about. He delights in giving us good things because that is His nature. Generosity is who He is.
Unfortunately, generosity is not inherent with humanity. We are all natural born takers. Our fallen nature is bent toward what we can get and not what we can give. But when we receive Christ, we receive His nature, the nature of God. With Christ in us, we are wired to give generously. The 90-Day Challenge is a perfect opportunity to begin tapping into this new nature we have received from God. Now is the time for us to be who we truly are, so give and give generously!
Thank God for the gift of eternal life found in Christ and ask Him to open your eyes to opportunities to give.
Generosity comes in many forms. We can give with our words, actions, finances, and possessions. Be quick today to compliment others. Be kind with your actions. Be generous with your finances. And bless others with your possessions.
