Genuine generosity.

 

Little did I know that for two years I would spend investing in relationship with other people. I went to about 500 coffees and lunches. And I got depressed after two years. I mean, I literally had met all these people.

Why did you go back? Because Why did you do that?

I had started a ministry slash business, wanted to connect with the people in the marketplace, and pastors in ministry and literally become a friend to them. And then if they needed any resource, I could help them get it. So it was more. I don't care if you pay me anything at all. I mean, that's great. That's a great benefit if that actually happens. But I want to get to know you. I want to be there for you. I want to help connect you.

That's called generosity right there.

I actually think about it like that. I feel like this is what we're supposed to be doing 

Genuine generosity.

Thank you very much. But I did I got depressed. Because I'm like God, I had been speaking, I had been preaching I had been pastoring. And now all of a sudden for two years. I'm not making a financial commitment to my family commitment, but I'm not supplying finances to my family the way my wife was, because she's now the primary breadwinner and, and I felt like I was always taking from that instead of giving to it.

But what God was doing was helping me understand that my purpose in life really is to lead people to understand what it means to love your neighbor as yourself.

And I believe as soon as Jesus uttered the words, I mean, the moment he uttered the words, our enemy, the devil said, that's my primary number one I'm going to do is I'm going to destroy relationships.


I'm going to try to get them into isolation. I mean, really, the pandemic has been a huge issue of that, you know, a lot of people don't see that as being an issue from the piano. It created isolation, and that's what they exactly what the enemy wanted.
