"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you."
Luke 6:38
The practice of generosity is a response to God’s generosity towards us. Everything we have is given to us as good gifts from God our Father.

Paul underscores this when he writes to the church in Corinth, “What do you have that you did not receive?”

When we practice generosity, we are walking in the way of Jesus, who gave His life for us. The entire character of His life on earth was one marked by generosity. He modeled it as a way that we should live as well.
