Gratitude and Generosity

by Berni Dymet

1Chr. 29:13 And now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name.

Sometimes we're pedaling so hard through life that we become completely consumed with just living; head down, pumping away … all we can think of is ourselves. What we have, what's next.

There was a time where God had blessed Israel and they just stood back and looked at how much God had blessed them - and they were overwhelmed with gratitude. King David declared before the assembly of Israel:

And now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name.

For some people, it's a long, long time since they've done that. And then an amazing thing happened. Their gratitude turned into generosity. They gave free will offerings to build the temple - God's house.

I know how easy it is when I'm pedaling hard just to worry about myself. But when I stop to count my blessings and thank God - it's just like Israel. All of a sudden my heart's desire is to bless others.

I'm pretty sure - it's a God thing.
