having a heart to give freely and offer help to others
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9.7
What a freedom we share in Christ! Once we have understood the magnitude of God's free gift of salvation and His rescue plan for us, the motivation for serving Him and obeying His commands completely turns around from fear to gratitude. Our giving takes the same path and we become more and more concerned with building God's kingdom rather than our own. Generosity is a discipline that flows from a yielded heart.
