Live Generously

When's the last time you did something spontaneously generous?

I'm writing this to myself as much as anybody.  I'm a great "planned generosity" guy.  Send me a letter, ask for help... so long as I have time to consider it, I'm good and will probably give something.

But how often do you or I respond to God's promptings to be spontaneously generous?  I've heard someone say: "If you have the thought you should give something to someone, it's probably not the devil telling you that."

If you can afford to go to a coffee shop this week, you can probably afford to pick up coffee for the guy in line behind you.  If you're meeting a friend for lunch, you can probably pick up his tab.
