Generous Galatians 6:9-10

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Throughout the bible there is a constant call to generosity. It begins with the example set by our generous God who created this world so lavishly and abundantly, who didn’t just create one of every kind but 100s of each species so that the world would overflow with beauty and life.

We are likewise called to imitate our God and to do all the good we can, the over and above what’s necessary kind of good to reflect the goodness and generosity of God.

It might seem like an effort,we may feel we have too much going on ourselves to be able to cope with the needs around us but we are told that whenever we have the opportunity to do good to those we meet.

So today, pray for the opportunity to do good,and in doing so we will reflect our generous God, but not only that,we will also reap a harvest-there will be blessing in abundance in return - because we cannot out do our generous God!
