Daily Blessing Generous with Kindness and Compassion

Daily Blessing
May you joyfully let your light shine for all men to see! Jesus has entrusted great gifts to you to scatter joy and proclaim His Name. Don’t underestimate the power of that twinkle in your eyes and that smile on your face. Be generous with kindness and compassion. Go out of your way to speak a word of encouragement to someone who crosses your path. Consider your family and faithful friends and tell them how much you love them. Whisper prayers for strangers as they pass you by. Ask God to impart insight into others’ needs so you can speak a word in due season or bring a gift at just the right time. And if you’re that someone in need of a lift, a rightly timed word, or a gift to brighten your day, may God mobilize an army of saints to step in and be there when you need it. God reaches the world through the hands and hearts of His friends. May you encounter Jesus this Lenten season.

2 Corinthians 9:8-11 (MSG) ~ God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it,

He throws caution to the winds,
giving to the needy in reckless abandon.
His right-living, right-giving ways
never run out, never wear out.

This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.
