A Philanthropic God

"I am a God of abundance. I will never run out of resources...gain glimpses of My overflowing vastness." (144)
To comprehend and access a "God of abundance" stretches most of us because we live in a world limited by self-focused supply-and-demand and poisoned with entitlement and greed. But God operates far differently!
To "gain glimpses" of the "God of abundance" in God's people, we will find those who operate out of the vastness of an eternal perspective rather than an overly practical materialistic perspective. Those who are in sync with such a philanthropic God tend to inspire us to become a more generous, kind and charitable soul.
God seems impractically generous...an abundance of beauty where no one sees, an abundance of detail to the tiniest of creatures, an abundance of love to the least strategic of people, an abundance of compassion to the least influential, an abundance of mercy to the least deserving, an abundance of potential to the least confident, an abundance of favor to the most overlooked... We have such an abundant, philanthropic God!
Awed & Inspired by Glimpses of His Generous Heart...dmc
