“Becoming A Delightful Land” By Kirk Hunt
“And all nations will call you blessed,
For you will be a delightful land,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
Please also read Malachi 3:8–12
You can be a delightful land, if you choose. All it takes is to be a giver. If you are generous in fact and nature, men and women, boys and girls, will see the glow of God through your life.
Malachi 3:10 is a promise of God. “If you give, He will bless.” Your platform may be small or large. Your capacity may be expansive or limited. What matters is your determination to serve and honor God through what you give.
You can do your generous acts in secret and anonymity. God’s omniscience will see your sincere heart anyway. His delight, in you honoring Him, will still fall on your life.
Yes, your giving must include finances. Your giving should also include your talent and especially your time. Consider that your time, talent and treasure may not all go to the same recipient, at the same time.
Nor is your giving limited to your personal resources. Channeling or enabling organizations and others is just as important as what you give yourself. Becoming delightful is never a zero-sum game. The more you do, the more you become able to do, and the richer your joy in service and giving.
God rewards His faithful daughters and sons. Do what you can, right where you are. Watch as you become blessed and even more blessing.
Think: Generosity of act and spirit, even in secret, makes you visibly blessed and blessing.
Pray: “Lord, help me to give so I can honor You.”
