Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Generosity

May 12th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Generosity.

This is the quality of being kind and unselfish with our resources, and is moved by a grateful heart toward a gracious God.

Proverbs 22:9 tells us that “the generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.”

Generosity is not measured in the amount of money or resources that we give, but the condition of our heart. There was a poor widow that put a small amount of money in an offering plate, but Jesus noticed what she gave, and commended her offering from a generous heart.

The Apostle Paul told a young pastor in First Timothy 6:18 to command those who are rich in this present world “to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.”

Where generosity flows, people’s needs are met and the hungry are fed. The giver and receiver are both refreshed in the process.

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