Developing a Generous Mindset

Adapted from the resource Wake Up to the Word - by Joyce Meyer

We are never more like God than when we are helping others, showing His love to those who are hurting. If you are willing to share with others and meet their needs, God will not only meet your needs but He will give you an abundance of supply so you will always be able to give.

I encourage you to develop the mindset that you are a generous giver. Look for ways to give and for needy people to whom you can give. The more you reach out to others, the happier you will be.

Jesus said that we would always have the poor with us (see Matthew 26:11), and the Bible has more than two thousand Scriptures that deal with our responsibility to the poor and needy. Study what the Bible says about God’s provision and see yourself as one who meets needs rather than one who is needy.

Prayer Starter: Father, thank you for developing a generous nature in me and for giving me plenty of time, help and provision to give away, amen.
