Normally we feature the writing of J.D. Greear on Thursdays, however since last week was Thanksgiving we moved his post to today. Recently, J.D. wrote about how the gospel changes our generosity.
Here is an excerpt:
Our generosity toward God should reflect the same measure of his sacrifice toward us. Jesus didn’t tithe his blood for us; he gave it all. Shouldn’t we respond by offering our all for him? Too often we implicitly tell God, “I’m willing to give you this much.” And maybe “this much” is generous, but there’s a limit. When we should be offering God a blank check with our lives, instead we simply give him the equivalent of a gift card.
