“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11: 25, New International Version)
Look to your own abundance. You have the capacity for genuine and joyous generosity. Your gifts are overflowing. You have God’s qualities resonating within you, always at the ready to be expressed. These are Love’s own attributes, and you have been given them freely, naturally, and permanently.
Draw on your riches and give with enthusiasm! Use that Love that God has given you to comfort, ease, and uplift others. Refresh the world with your own natural radiance and your sincere desire to be a light wherever darkness appears, and a cleansing, renewing spirit to whatever seems burdened and troubled.
This generosity won’t deplete you nor will it leave you without the tender mercy and compassionate care you may need yourself. Be willing to give and willing to receive. Be generous with your trust that others can help and refresh you as well.
And most of all, be generous with your gratitude for God Who is the Source of all the Life and Love there is—the boundless and active and refreshing Spirit that preserves, protects, and renews one and all.
