Peace family, what would you do if you won the lottery? How would it affect your generosity?
A friend and I often discuss what we would do if we won the lottery. My friend dreams of going out with a certain amount money each day, and helping random people on the street as the Holy Spirit leads. As for me, I’d like to pay off my aunt’s house, and help my cousin with debt (though I’d also like to take a bunch of my friends and family on a cruise to the Bahamas!)
The last time that we had that conversation, it occurred to me- what am I doing to give in the present? I don’t have a million dollars, but how am I letting God use me and lead in my daily life? Am I letting him use me, or am I too busy doing my own thing?
There’s nothing that says we have to wait to get a million dollars before we start to give generously. There’s nothing that says that we have to be a certain age, certain level of coolness or success, or certain physical shape in order for God to use us. God can use you, right now!
Peace family, don’t wait. Let’s you and me both allow God to use us today, right now, for his glory. Think about my friend and my silly conversation and how you don’t have to wait, but can give of yourself and your resources in the present. We might see some miracles!
