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. We live in a world limited by self-focused supply-and-demand and poisoned with entitlement and greed. But God operates far differently!
We can "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 holding to 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 on some remote flower-laden hillside  where no one sees or stands in awe, an abundance of dazzling delicate detail to the tiniest insect He created, an abundance of shimmering stars in folds of endless space, an abundance of love to the least strategic or powerless of people, an abundance of mercy to the least deserving or downcast, an abundance of potential to the least confident or influential, an abundance of favor to the highly overlooked and most unappreciated soul... We have such an abundant, philanthropic God!

  1. ... and I am thankful and privileged to serve such an AWESOME God! He blesses me beyond measure from His vast riches!

    Have a great day in the SON!

  2. Ah, yes, Carolynn, and we each have a Daddy in the presence of our Awesome Father! Just think of it!

  3. I am thankful God tells us to ask him. We do not bug him when we ask. He has all that we need.
