The Joy of Giving

The Holy Gift
Part 1: The Joy of Giving
by Lindy Baker

During the month of July, Pastor Roger delivered a series of Sunday messages on Joy. As I’ve been reflecting on our good God who desires to fill us with joy, I’ve thought about the many ways that God has brought joy in my life. One way that was unexpected was found in the joy of giving.

To find joy in giving shouldn’t be a surprise. We have a very generous God and it is clear that He enjoys providing for His children. Not only does He provide for all our needs, but He encourages us to let our requests be known to Him, in a desire to answer prayers and remind us of His deep care and love for us. God’s generosity knows no bounds, even to the point of offering His son.

Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him wouldn’t perish, but would have eternal life.
