Remember MC Hammer’s big hit: U Can’t Touch This?
When it comes to the subject of money, many people are singing Hammers’ tune…
It’s private. None of your business. This is between me and God. You talk about money too much.
U can’t touch this.
I said it before and I’ll say it again: Grace Changes Everything.
Grace changes our heartstrings and our purse strings.
Grace makes us aware of how much God has provided for us – and it makes us generous.
Yes, with grace – U can touch this!
“God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.” (2 Corinthians 9.10 NLT)
God’s provision produces a harvest of generosity in us.
It’s impossible to have received God’s grace and remain selfish and stingy.
Our giving reflects our receiving – of God’s grace.
Grace makes us generous.
