A Giving Heart
The great eighteenth century preacher Jonathan Edwards had a giving heart. Generosity marked him in his early years. When he was only nineteen he decided to make charity a rule of life. “Resolved,” he wrote, “to be endeavoring to find out fit objects of charity and liberality.” Luke 6:38 – “Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.” Find an excuse to be generous to someone today. And keep it between you and the Lord.
