We run a business. Sometimes we receive a cheque, drawn on a major bank, from someone at church. We just can’t figure that out - why would someone from church NOT bank at the Christian Credit Union? It’s like...read more

Generous Giving/Generous Living

May 07, 2014

Recently a fellow staff member forwarded a devotional from Dr. Charles Stanley based on 2 Corinthians 9:6-15 entitled “The Fruitful Giver”. Dr. Stanley compares the Jordan River which is surrounded by trees and greenery to the Dead Sea, where nothing lives. The reason is the Dead Sea has no outlet; when the water flows in, it stays there. The salts accumulate and poison the water.

Dr. Stanley goes on to make a comparison between two financial plans. The Dead Sea is based on accumulation and preservation of wealth. The goal is to get enough so you have enough. This approach can lead to self-centered stagnation and can make lives spiritually unfruitful and may hinder the good works God wants us to do. The Lord’s financial plan is like the Jordan River that moves continuously. As His provisions flow into our lives, we pass them on to others. This results in a fruitful life centered on the building of God’s kingdom. Verse 10 promises that God will supply enough to live (“bread for food”) plus enough to give (“seed for sowing”).

What implications does this have for you today and for your estate plan? There may be needs in the church and the world that He wants you to meet through your generosity. Verse 11 makes another promise: “You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us”. I have been blessed to know many members in our community who can attest to this. Blessings as you consider this.
