Absorbing God’s Word

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” Philippians 2:3

Applying God’s Word

The value of the dollar has changed, but the value of a person’s hard work hasn’t changed.

It’s not unusual for me to carry around a pocket full of $5- or $10-dollar bills. God places folks in my path all the time that need a small reward for their hard work.

Louise and I were in a restaurant the other day quietly rewarding a few dishwashers, bussers and waitresses for their hard work. When we asked for our check, our waiter smiled and said, “Someone already paid it.” I looked around and saw a man at the register with two checks. I approached him and said, “Thank you. That was very generous.” He said, “You are very welcome.” We stepped outside and ended up sharing all that God has been doing in our lives.

Generosity is contagious and it doesn’t have to have anything to do with money.

Accounting of God’s Word

Am I generous? Have I paid for someone’s bill lately or has someone paid for mine?
