Generosity is the Way of Christian Life

 

"No one is too rich that he or she does not want to receive anything from other people, and no one is too poor to say that I have nothing to give" St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

"Whatever we give to others, it is on the way coming back to us already."  Unknown. Christian model of giving is a way of depositing to their own wellbeing in the after-life.

There is a story: A rich man had a dream in which he died and went to heaven. St. Peter escorted him down a lovely street on which each house was magnificent. The rich man saw one house that was particularly beautiful. "That," said Peter, "is the house of one of your servants."

"Well," said the man, smiling, "if my servant has a building like that, then I'm really looking forward to seeing my own magnificent mansion."

 

Soon they came to a very small street where the houses were tiny. "You will live in that hut," said St. Peter, pointing his finger. "Me, live in that hovel!" roared the man in great anger. "This is the best we can do for you," explained St. Peter. "You must understand that we only build your home up here with the material you send ahead while you are still on earth" (McArdle, Jack, 150 More Stories for Preachers and Teachers, # 9). 

"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." - 2 Corinthians 9:7
