WEEK 8, DAY 5
Silence and stillness before God (2 Min)
Read Philippians 4:2-23
How not to be stressed out, Step 5
It’s amazing that Paul would conclude this section on the peace of God by talking about giving. It’s amazing because we don’t often think of living a content life as one that practices giving to others, but it’s true.
In Ephesians 4:28 Paul says:
28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
One of the major reasons we work is to share! It is a mission to make this city and our community a better place, and to advance the work of the kingdom of God.
We work, love and live full-hearted lives by joining Christ in His mission to bring hope and renewal to a very broken world. Generosity flows from generosity. When we realize all the Lord has given us, it is our joy to give freely to others.
How do you view generosity in your own life?
How is generosity connected to contentment?
