The Tapestry of a Generous Heart

While we have opportunity, let us do good to all people.—GALATIANS 6:10 NASB

Every day we are given opportunities to be charitable to our neighbors and those we love. We can look for opportunities to serve. This openhanded state of mind is a pleasure to God. He delights when we reach out to others.

Caregiving is a constant state of giving—and it can be draining if we aren’t careful. “Keep on keeping on” becomes a mantra; even when we’re weary, there are things to do. But we can be encouraged by the words of the apostle Paul: “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary” (Galatians 6:9 NASB, emphasis added).

Joni Eareckson Tada has said, “In heaven, we will stand amazed to see the topside of the tapestry and how God beautifully embroidered each circumstance into a pattern for our good and His glory.” A tapestry woven with threads of our kindness, our giving spirit. Strands of love laced together. Cords of faithfulness and selflessness intertwined, forming a beautiful picture. No good deed will go unrecorded. What a pleasure for the Father to see our hearts knit with His. 

Heavenly Father, please help me to weave a stunning tapestry with my life, one that is pleasing to You. I love You, Lord.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38–39 (NIV)
