"Generosity will be rewarded:

Give a cup of water,

and you will receive

a cup of water in return." ~Proverbs 11:25

WHOA! Another huge week for WHOAwomen and all of us that are a part of this thriving and growing community! As I was meditating this weekend on what I would like to share today, I was reminded of a great lesson on generosity! Generosity can be defined as, "readiness or liberality in giving." What this says to me is that we all should be on the look out everyday to see where we can be generous.

Generosity was created first by our heavenly Father. God was so generous when He made the earth and all that is in it. Also, His supreme act of generosity was when He gave us His only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. If we are to grow more like Christ then we must get over ourselves, i.e. our own pity parties,doing the right thing even when we don't feel like it, and being good to our enemies.

Generosity is one of the kindest actions, as a Christ Follower, that we can do!

In conclusion, my challenge to all of us is this: who in the world is thanking God for us today because of our generosity? As the Proverbs stated above, God indeed gives back to the giver but He also LOVES a cheerful giver! Never underestimate the power of generosity-- it may just be the answer to your breakthrough!

Livin' lively,
