Living generously means living with a “margin mentality.” By working hard for our money and living wisely, we create a margin financially to live generously.
Proverbs 6:6-8 says…
“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.”
So what does Proverbs 6 have to do with living generously?
These verses explain the difference between and ant and a slug. The ant is always working while the slug is always resting.
God commands us to work unless we physically can’t. When we are a “slug,” we develop an entitlement mentality, which robs us of joy. But living generously is about having a margin mentality, and protects the joy God gives us through giving.
… We do our part, fulfilling our responsibilities, and God will do great things and multiply our efforts. Living generously isn’t about giving everything we have away, it's about giving away what God has given us to further His kingdom.
Decisions are like dollars. They return to us with compound interest. So choose to live generously, expect all your needs to be met, and reap an abundant harvest in the next season.
