Last night at church, I spoke about generosity. I think this is an interesting topic, given the current economic climate in the US. I’ll cut to the core quick here: I think that particularly in this season, it would be extremely appropriate for us to consider the different ways that we can give to Jesus, besides monetarily. I think we can give Him our service, keeping in mind what He talked about in Matt 25:40, when He was discussing visiting the sick, clothing the naked, feeding the hungry & thirsty, receiving the stranger & visiting those in prison. In the context of the parable Jesus is sharing related to all of these needs, Jesus explains that when we care even for the least person, that we’re caring for Him.
We can also give more of our self to Jesus – like the sinful woman who washed & dried Jesus’ feet w her tears & hair, and anointed Jesus head w expensive oil. Jesus explained the heart of her generosity when He said, “He who has been forgiven much, loves much. But he who has been forgiven little, loves little.” Let’s love Jesus alot.
