God gives generously all that we need. We needed to be saved from sin and death and God gave us His best. Let’s listen to John 3:16 -16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Giving cheerfully should be a way of life for all of us who have been forgiven by God’s grace. When we do, God will make sure that we have all that we need. He will supply it according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. He promises us that!

This abundant grace that God offers extends and abound in every good work that God has preordained for you and I. You do know that we were created as God’s workman right?
