Thoughts and a Prayer

“God richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment…
Be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up the treasure of a good foundation for the future… take hold of the life that really is life.” – 1 Timothy 6:17b-19 (abridged)

“O Lord, release me from the fears and guilts which grip me so tightly; from the expectations and opinions which I so tightly grip, that I may be open to receiving and sharing the assurance you give, and to risking something genuinely new. Grant me hope, Lord, and remind me of your steady power and gracious purposes that I may live fully.” – ADAPTED FROM TED LODER, GUERILLAS OF GRACE

“The key to generosity is knowing the fullness already ours. A less than generous understanding of ourselves issues in a constricted way of living and of giving.” – Inspiring Generosity
