“Looking at it one way, you could say, “Anything goes. Because of God’s immense generosity and grace, we don’t have to dissect and scrutinize every action to see if it will pass muster.” But the point is not to just get by. We want to live well, but our foremost efforts should be to help others live well.” (1 Cor 10:23)
This isn’t about sowing into someone’s life, hoping to get something back because you ‘see the spark of genius,’ inside them. This is about giving - even when it hurts.
I spoke about my business yesterday, but what I didn’t tell you is that it died because our main client died and left us with a socking great debt that we couldn’t service. Anyway, from being a director of a successful company, I then had to suffer the personal ignominy of bankruptcy and director disqualification …
As I was going through this traumatic time, a friend actually stepped in and fully paid off our personal debt, (GOD bless him and his lovely wife), this major factor cost them a lot and enabled us to begin life again without the burden of a huge debt around our necks.
“Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity! Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything —every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. Just as the Scriptures say about the one who trusts in him: Because he has sown extravagantly and given to the poor, his kindness and generous deeds will never be forgotten.” (2 Cor 9:7) ❤️
