Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”Luke 6:38
During Lent, the LORD calls us to an extraordinary practice of generosity.
Being generous is an act of becoming.
It is only through frequent practice of this virtue, that we can more easily enable the graces of this virtue in our lives.
The act of being generous, means that we have to deny ourselves of some luxury, pleasure or even necessity.
So how do we perfect this virtue in our lives?
Firstly, we need to trust that God will always supply our needs according to His riches and glory.
This is why today’s promise has come to us.
The LORD is assuring us that as we care for the needs of others, He will never leave us or forsake us.
Secondly, we need to ask the LORD for the grace to truly deny ourselves, and have a heart of compassion for our brothers and sisters in need.
Complacency is so easy, and sometimes it stems out of sorrow fatigue.
The enemy wants us to feel helpless as though our sacrifices and offerings make no impact.
But even though they may be as a drop in the oceans, the LORD gathers all those drops to form mighty rivers of grace.
Today, let us trust God’s Word and desire to be more generous as He desires for us to be.
Helping those who are in dire need of our mercy.
Almighty and Eternal Father, we give You praise for Your Divine blessings in our lives.
All we have received comes from Your hands.
Therefore gracious Father, give us a heart like Yours that is lavishly generous and compassionate.
Show us the ways You desire for us to be generous.
Let us become like You LORD, attending to the needs of our brethren with great love and devotion.
Perfect Your work in our lives, that we may be meek and humble like You, LORD Jesus.
We bless and praise You forever!
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
