together and running over, will be poured into your lap.” Luke 6:38
Daily Express: Decide today to live the rest of your days as a generous person.
Often when we talk about being generous, we think in terms of money. But
today I ask you to expand your concept of generosity. If you lift the

which to be generous.

held yourself back within the past.

You can also be generous to yourself. We are often hardest on ourselves.
Let us not let the small fingers of doubt and fear unravel our garment of
faith. Let us hold generously to the steadfastness that is the security
of faith in God. Each day we can give in generosity to ourselves by adding
to and strengthening our own faith, for in so doing it will strengthen our
resolve to be generous in our daily life with others.

particle of God’s ground. I pray that when I work there in I am conscious

through all, and overall for her rich seedtime and harvest.
