Extreme Generosity

I must confess that I find it easier to buy my dream $600 smartphone than spend the same amount on charity or advancing God's Kingdom. It is always a tough struggle for me in deciding how best to spend money...

As I reflected on the meaning of Christmas, I discovered a generosity that is baffling and extreme: the gift of the baby Jesus. God spared nothing to bring us back to Him - what about our response? We deserved nothing but He gave His all; He deserved everything but we withheld much...

We cannot outdo God's generosity because there is nothing we have that does not come from Him. Let us pray to always remember God's extreme generosity so that we may be more generous with our love, time and money towards Him and our fellow sojourners.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

"Freely you have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8)

"He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly." (Acts 10:2)
