You can give without loving but you cannot love without giving

We can be generous in many different ways…

  • With our money / our time / our practical help / our kindness
  • It’s our love and reason for doing it that counts

The greatest generosity is found in Jesus

  • God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life

Note that it does NOT say… Whoever believes about Him…

  • Even the devil believes about Jesus (just as we do about Queen Victoria, Julius Caesar or Washington)
  • We must believe in Him… We have full confidence in who He is, what He has done and what He promises for each of us as we trust and obey Him

So here is Jesus’ generous offer to you and me …

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you… because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
