Thank you very much for critiquing everything.
God bless you.
One way that God facilitates positive change in us is by stirring our hearts. He moves my heart to give. I wish to wisely give away everything that He has entrusted me with. After all, we are just passing through this world; and if we allow Him to, God passes His blessings through us. He taught me that He gives more through me than to me.
Will God’s stirring in your heart lead you to a positive change?
Abigail’s plea to David applies to us, God is calling you to greater things.
Questions for individual reflection or group discussion
1. What has God blessed you with? E.g. talents, assets, good character, intelligence.
So that you don’t forget God’s goodness, create a list of things that God has given you.
Periodically update the list and reflect on God’s generosity. Can these blessings bless others?
2. Has God facilitated positive change in you by stirring your heart? Explain.
3. Was there something in particular that triggered your heart to stir? For me with regard to giving, it was the story of Abigail and the National Christian Foundation’s giving program.
