Thankfulness and Generosity
By Tim Erickson
With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, I’ve been pondering the relationship between thankfulness and generosity. I often find that I am generous because I am thankful for what has been generously given to me. I don’t think it is a stretch to assume that others have been generous towards me because they were thankful for others being generous towards them…This cycle proposes a couple great questions: How did it all start and which came first, the thankfulness or the generosity?
Looking at the narrative of scripture, it is clear that generosity came first, because God created it.
God made us, loves us, and has given us more than we could ever imagine. He always has and always will. He gave us his Son to die on the cross- the ultimate act of benevolence- while we were still sinners. Jesus defeated death and advocates for us. This gives us all reason to be deeply thankful and inspires generosity, which inspires thankfulness, which inspires… well you get the idea.
So live thankfully and live generously, knowing that the God we serve started it all.
Get away. Get Life. Get to The Point.
