For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
[Excerpted from Pathway to Abundant Generosity, Herald House, p. 15]
Love drives generosity that arises from compassionate hearts to meet the great needs of others. Generosity is an agent of change and transformation as it fulfills, lifts, and provides what many desperately need—temporally and spiritually.
Our generosity is not inspired by what others deserve, but what they need. We begin to see, with God’s grace, how many lives are waiting for the redeeming power of our generosity.
Our abundant generosity to achieve Christ’s mission makes possible what otherwise seems impossible. The urgency for generous disciples fully devoted to the cause of Zion has never been greater.
“…he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love” (Lamentations 3:32).
Breathing God’s Compassion
Light a candle and sit quietly, reflecting on the fire and light of God. Pay attention to your breathing and let it become calmer and deeper as you focus on God’s presence. Ask God to breathe in you. Image each breath carrying the light of God into your lungs, bloodstream, and every cell in your body until God’s Spirit fills you. Now imagine breathing out God’s compassion and grace each time you exhale. Pray to have the Spirit of Christ radiate from your life like the gentle flame of a candle.
