Generosity of Spirit

eden08122015

In loving memory of all who died on 9-11-2001

Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, bids us to be generous givers.  There is a difference between having a spirit of generosity and being generous of spirit.

I think Jesus taught and demonstrated the importance of being generous of spirit all throughout the Gospels.  The message confirms what the Bible tells us about God; He is love.  “I am love and joy and peace and strength and power and healing, and all you see in Me, your Lord,” to quote directly from God Calling.  All these things and so much more are found in close relationship with Jesus, and with our Heavenly Father.  Each one of these traits springs from the others.  Each one of them supports and empowers the others to thrive.  Generosity of spirit is what empowers a spirit of generosity because it wipes away fear, and empowers faith-in oneself, and in others.

As I read the message, along with the teachings of our Lord Jesus, I am reminded of all those who sacrificed their lives seventeen years ago.  I am deeply grateful for all whose generosity of spirit got us through that day and the days following the tragedy.  I am also prayerful that every man, all of humanity will one day come to understand that that same generosity of spirit is all we need.  And it’s what we all need.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
