Our Scripture reading today is Matthew 5:40-42.
Verse 42, "Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away."
The church is made up of born-again, baptized believers. It is referred to as a body and we know that a body is made up of many members. Each member is very important and is needed to perform his or her service for the Lord. A quality that is needed in each of our lives is generosity. A church filled with generosity is a church that is one that is becoming more like Jesus Christ. Our generosity is not limited to, but does include our finances. Are we willing to give to a church member or a church project when we know there is a need?
In addition to our finances, we should be generous with our time. There is something special about a local church that is labouring together in order to bring glory to God. Nothing done for the Lord is insignificant. I am thankful for the many servants of the Lord at Anchor Baptist who have given of themselves whenever there was a need for labourers. May God help us to teach and train the next generation by our example of generosity.
Have a wonderful day!
