Love Fuels Generosity

Love Fuels Generosity

John 3:16 is perhaps the most well-known verse in the Bible.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 3:16

If we wish to be generous, we must know this verse intimately. It reminds us that God did not ask anything of us that He has not first done for us. God is the most generous giver. Love motivated the Father to generously give His one and only Son as a ransom for many.

As recipients of God’s generous gift of salvation, Christians should also seek opportunities to generously give of our lives and resources with love as the great motivator. Generous givers have a heart of love, one built on compassion and care, and that values human beings created in God’s image. 

We give from the depths of our resources and abilities, and sacrificially; again, like God, who sacrificed His only son. A generous giver gives his/her very best, just like God gave His only Son.

It is the will of God that we become generous givers, but He would never ask us to do what He has not first done for us.  Love motivated God to give his best in response to our greatest need. The love of God is what ought to fuel our generous giving
