An Invitation

God speaks. He speaks into our hearts and minds through people, nature, the church. He also speaks to us through His Word. His Word is His love letter to us, His way of helping us remember who we are and assure us of His promises. His Word is the road map to help us live the passionate adventurous lives He always meant for us.

These blog entries are teasers. Insights and revelations to encourage you to read the bible, the greatest piece of literature that was written especially for you, God's child.

Ruth's Generosity

Ruth 2:18 She carried it back to town, and her mother-in-law saw how much she had gathered. Ruth also brought out and gave her what she had left over after she had eaten enough.

How much money do you make? Do you honor God with your wealth? Do you share with your family, friends and the marginalized?

Abundance is not how much money you make. It's trusting and knowing that God is your ultimate Provider and as long as you cling to and trust Him, He will meet all your material needs.

Ruth didn't have a job or husband to support her. But when Boaz gave her the opportunity to gather grain from his field, she shared the fruit of her labor with her mother-in-law. Ruth could've hidden her newfound wealth. She could've complained that Naomi didn't deserve the grain because she didn't lift a finger. But out of the abundance of her heart, Ruth decided to be generous.

Are you struggling with the idea of tithing? Is it difficult to be generous with your family and friends? Today, trust that the Lord is your Provider and He will meet all your material needs. Honor Him with your wealth and be generous to someone in need.
