I had lunch with a new friend the other day. In the course of the meeting he shared with me that he has learned to treat his money like a river, not a reservoir. That God provides in order for him to give, and that he has to keep 'the flow' going in order to keep it healthy. I felt like that was a really good picture of the Christian life in all areas.
Whatever God gives us is to be treated like a river. Prayer, mentorship, joy, food, hospitality, prophecy, righteousness, courage, discipline, and service, as well as money.
So what has God given you?
Are you giving it away?
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”
