Be Generous with the Mana

"What does it mean to glorify the Lord? Well, it means showing off Jesus and His generous nature! Talking about Him, thinking about Him, singing about His goodness, pointing people to Him, letting all His attributes and character qualities shine through your life. That's what it means to glorify Him. But I think we glorify the Lord best when we freely and richly give to others. By God's grace, you are His manna to your neighbors and friends. You are His light shining in our dark world. You are the vessel through which His grace overflows to your spouse and to your children and grandchildren. And out of you flow streams, even rivers of life touching a desperately thirsty world around you. God’s charge today to you and me is to freely and richly give all things for others to enjoy. So if you love Christ – and I think you do – watch for opportunities today to touch those who are wounded, encourage those who are helpless, strengthen those who are weak, bless those who are hopeless, and help those who are faltering, because you were once wounded and helpless, weak, hopeless and faltering. But you have been saved by a generous God whose blessings do not stop and start based on your performance. No. John chapter 1, verse 16 says, “From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.” And it’s all so that you might extend those mercies to others in need. Give freely and richly because it’s what Jesus has done for you." Joni Tada read more at: Sharing the Mana
