Thoughts from my crazy head this morning:

Whether you have student loans, or you don't. Whether you live paycheck to paycheck or have lots in savings. Whether your home is worth half the amount it was when you bought it (welcome to our life) or it's worth more than you bought it for. Whether you think you are, or you don't. You are rich. Simply because you live in the United States of America. You get to eat three meals a day and have clean water and a roof over your head.

1 Tim 6:17-18: "Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share"

It's the season of giving because Christ gave to us. If you think you'll be generous in xxx number of years or when xxx moves out of the house or when xxx money gets saved in your bank account or when you pay of xxx loan, or when you buy that house with xxx amount of cash, you wont. Be generous now. When it's hard (or maybe it's not). Because there will always be something to strive for financially, and there will always be excuses. Be generous. Be generous with your time, your talents, your money, your heart.

***My thoughts from this year's Big Give. This is me preaching to myself!

Thank you for the reminder of how important it is to give generously all year long! Not just at Christmas!
