“But since you excel in everything–in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you –see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7
When we excel in the grace of giving we activate our generosity gene because giving is in our spiritual DNA.
Think about it. When we were born again into God’s family we were born into a family of unimaginable generosity.
As James 1:17 reminds us the Father gives generously, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights.” The Holy Spirit, not to be outdone, gives us spiritual gifts to enjoy and employ (1 Corinthians 12:11.) And the Son gave the ultimate gift of his own life for us (John 10:11.)
