When you think about our Lord of the cross, you may be confronted with the measure of Himself that He gave for the salvation of the world. Ask the Lord to inspire a sense of generosity that shares out of the energy, intelligence, joy, substance, imagination and love that we have freely received from Him.
2 Corinthians 9:7 — You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly.
Deuteronomy 15:7-10 — If in any of the towns in the land that the Lord your God is giving you there are Israelites in need, then do not be selfish and refuse to help them. 8 Instead, be generous and lend them as much as they need. 9 Do not refuse to lend them something, just because the year when debts are canceled is near. Do not let such an evil thought enter your mind. If you refuse to make the loan, they will cry out to the Lord against you, and you will be held guilty. 10 Give to them freely and unselfishly, and the Lord will bless you in everything you do.
Mark 4:24 — And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
