Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Generosity

June 14th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is a generous spirit.

The disciples of the early church were not perfect, but they were committed to Christ and made a difference in their world as they were led by the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:45 points out that these first-generation followers of Christ sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.

They were sensitive to the needs of those around them, and participated in the sacrifice of sharing. Acts 4:34 tells us that there were no needy persons among them. From time to time, those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales, and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.”

At the heart of these actions is a generous spirit that is willing to share. Hebrews 13:16 instruct us with these words: “Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Generosity is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
