8-28-14 On Giving

giving kisses

The Grace of God is like the falling rain

Providing nourishment and life so dear.

But do you think the giving clouds complain?

They grow so full the giving is sincere.

The gift you give comes from an open heart

Or else becomes a chore begrudgingly.

In loathing you just set yourself apart

And giving turns to loss especially.

God loves a cheerful giver, this is true,

For this reflects the love that Jesus had.

He gave His very life, and gladly, too;

He gave His blood, t’was nothing more to add.

            So search your heart and give what you decide;

            Let loving motivate and Spirit guide.


Each one must give as he has decided in his heart,

not reluctantly or under compulsion,

for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV

  1. Dear Jay, If you only knew how dear HIS grace is to me.
    HE makes a fresh batch of mercy daily Lamentations 3:22,23
    and grace Lamentations 3:26,32

    HE pleaded for our souls and won Lamentations 3:58
    and gave back our lives which Satan thought that he had.

    Thank YOU, FATHER!
