God’s generosity

“Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 1:14, NLT).

This clue about God is fairly obvious. He is so generous and gracious he filled Paul with faith and love even though he had been hunting down and killing followers of Christ. God’s generosity is so vast no one can out give him. His graciousness is so immense we can’t do or think of anything he can’t forgive.

God isn’t stingy and doesn’t withhold his blessings. Unlike what some think of God, he isn’t like us – he’s completely free from meanness and has no smallness of mind or character (the opposite of generosity). He provides for everyone, even those who don’t acknowledge his provision, because with God, everyone’s included in his umbrella of magnanimity.
