E. Carver McGriff: Generosity involves more than money

“Generosity involves more than money … The measure is a loving attitude and the willingness to pay a price, whether in money, time, or the subtle willingness to think the best when our lesser selves might very well take secret pleasure in another person’s discomfort.”

E. Carver McGriff in Lectionary Preaching Workbook, Series VI, Cycle C (Lima: CSS Publishing, 2000) 248.

God, help us to exhibit generosity that involves more than money. By your Holy Spirit, develop loving hearts within us that are willing to pay the price to minister to the needs of others. Thank you, Jesus, for doing this for each of us.
