An unlikely generosity devotional examining why God doesn’t need our generosity and how we can respond.

In this devotional, we want to think about God. The chosen theme of the fullness of God refers to the fact that God doesn’t need anything from us nor does anything we give add in any respect to his nature or abilities. God is full in and of himself.

Why is the fullness of God important to a proper understanding of Christian generosity?

  • It magnifies God. Generosity is an act of worship. The greater God appears to us, the more we will want to worship him through giving.
  • It humbles us. We depend on God and give to him as the acknowledgement that he is the ultimate supplier of all things.
  • It motivates generosity. If God has everything and rules everything, we never need to fear that we will lack anything.

As he has been, he is, and evermore shall be

For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. 1 Timothy 4:5

God puts his power on display through human weakness

God uses detours, the unexpected turns, to accomplish his purposes

God is the one who changes things

The Bible calls us to more than merely appreciating God’s gifts. We have to move from appreciation to imitation. That means giving of our financial resources just as He gave himself up for us.
