They were generous givers
Like overflowing fountains
Their lives enriched
All who they encountered
Easing the load
Their kind words
Showing you’re not alone.
I see a generation who are generous. Not only with their money, but generous with their time, with their hearts and with their words. A generation who live open lives, with outstretched hands, not clinging too tightly to their own, but cheerfully and graciously giving to others. Their eyes are wide open, their hearts and minds alert to the needs around them.
They are hospitable. Generous in opening up their homes. They’re the ones who willingly go the extra mile…over and above. They give freely, without prejudice or judgement, without keeping track or expecting in return. Above all, their delight is in the Lord and their life overflows with thanksgiving; for He, first, is a generous God. They count it a privilege to be generous.
I see a generation who give generously, love abundantly, forgive freely, share openhandedly, speak encouragement bountifully and live hospitably.
“In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people. And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.”2 Corinthians 8:2-5
