Generous giving

"God loveth a cheerful giver." II Cor. 9:7. The Apostle Paul's words certainly point toward a characteristic of most Christians. People who feel God's constant lovingkindness usually reflect that love in their own attitudes toward others.

The giving that truly blesses is far more than a human (and sometimes unwise) desire to make others happy or to placate an uneasy conscience. Rather it is a giving which is impelled by our own response to divine Love's requirements. God's man, our true identity, must love because he is Love's own expression. The more we know of God as divine Love, and identify ourselves as the man of Love's creating, the more we feel the divine intelligence guiding and prompting those wise decisions that bring so much joy to us and others.
