Wednesday 9th of August

 “God loves a cheerful giver.”

When we spend quality time with Jesus, we can absorb his love, and when we meditate on his Word, it gives us hope, purpose, and encouragement to do more, love more and give more to those in need.

It’s so true that we can only give what we have. If we have Jesus’ life and love inside of us, then we will be able to share it with others. However, when we lack his life and love, we may help others out of obligation and duty, so it becomes a burden, and we are unhappy. However, Jesus gives unconditionally and willingly, so we are to follow his path.

What holds us back from being generous and loving? Do we give unconditionally and cheerfully? Are we a reflection of God’s image when dealing with others?
