A Generous God and Father

I have been thinking about how generous is our God and Father.
  1. He created the heavens and the earth and they are full of His glory and goodness.
  2. He gave us His Son, Jesus, so that we could live again.
  3. He gave us the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter and Counselor.
  4. He gave us the Scriptures which communicate the truth and guide our thoughts, words and actions.
  5. He gave us all things that pertain to life and godliness for our enjoyment.
  6. He gave us one another.
Realizing how good and generous is our God, it has made me, as one made in His image, want to be generous as well. I want to be generous with my time, my talents and all of our resources.
Psa. 112:5 Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.
Prov. 11:25 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Would you say that you are a generous person? God is!
