For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
If I ever need a model or an example to learn about generosity, this should suffice. I have to admit, it kind of makes my brain hurt to try and figure out what it was like for God to give his own son. But when we talk about being generous to the point of causing some hardship (to the giver), this certainly is the perfect example.
Lord God, you model generosity at every turn. The very air we breathe is a gift from you. I am thankful. Amen
