Discipline in Generosity

History is filled with the faithful discovering or experiencing God’s provision. This website offers five testimonies on God’s provision (“5 Stories of Miraculous Provision,” Premier Christianity, May 21, 2019, https://www.premierchristianity.com/features/5-stories-of-miraculous-provision/2166.article). The first one tells of a young man in college who never stopped tithing, even when it was only a penny, only to suddenly have a large sum of money deposited into his bank account with no idea where it came from. His response? To be obedient to God and give half of it away to a stranger. Generosity is a spiritual discipline because most of us only want to give when we have in abundance. This Lent consider using the act of generosity to help you focus on Jesus.
