‘Grace Abundant’

…God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to
make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things,
always having all you need, you may have an abundance
for every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:7-8

That these two verses come right together is crucial for  me. Giving to people can be a joy, yet some requests  for time, money or to take on new responsibilities may  feel impossible to give consent to, never mind cheerfully. 

I have learned that when I can focus on God’s making “every grace abundant for me,” I can begin in the  direction of cheerfulness. I am not acting alone. I can  hold on to God’s love when calling or visiting a difficult person, or smiling at the usher collecting another  donation, or welcoming someone to merge in during  rush hour traffic. God’s grace will also remind me not  to give something that would be enabling someone’s  irresponsible behavior or commit myself to do more  than I can healthily take on.

Thank you, God, for cheerfully giving me this help!
