The Gift of Giving

The gift of giving is one of the most powerful gifts that we have. The Lord gives without counting the cost or measuring the volume. All thing are His to give. And what He gives to us, we are free to give to others.

Our work is to give as He gives to us, without counting the cost. "Freely you have received; freely give." (Matthew 10:8 NIV)

That means that we give all things: material wealth, spiritual insights, His peace, and His joy. We paid nothing for them, and we are charged with giving them away that His work may be multiplied. It is an unending chain of sharing.

Enough is enough.
More than enough
should be given away.
