Sharing a beautiful, encouraging word from my in-box this morning:
From The Passion Translation Team:
I Hear His Whisper…
I give gifts of love and grace.
I love to give good gifts to my children. My heart is filled with longing to see my sons and daughters soar and excel in every way. My Spirit is freely given to all who call upon me. My gifts are wrapped with love and given in grace without strings attached. So I call you, my child, to emulate me and live a generous life.
Give to everyone who asks and to all you meet. Give your prayers, time, love, and money. Hold on to nothing but my mercy, for I will supply all your needs. No one will out-give me. Be a true child, reflecting my generous heart, and I will fill you with an endless measure of my glory. I call you into the life of generosity, a life of yielding your heart to my grace. Shine as a light in the world. Let me stretch your faith and show you my faithfulness. Ask of me, and I will even give nations as your inheritance. Pray to me, and I will give you a generous heart, for I am your Father, the God of endless supply.

The Passion Translation
Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! Your measurement of generosity becomes the measurement of your return.
