Walking With The Father: How generous are you?

November 11, 2018

How generous are you?

  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how generous are you? Today's readings are all about generosity. It can be uncomfortable to think about this sensitive subject, but we should try to navigate through it, especially as we approach the most expensive months of the year. Father Matthew reflects on how everything we have is from God's generosity to us. We are tested to see if we are willing to share our gifts with others. Are we fearful to preserve our comfortable life, or are we generous to others? Today's reading teaches us how faith is needed during acts of generosity. God rewards us when we are generous in our giving. Perhaps we can learn something from the protestants who tithe. We are not so concerned so much about the amount, but rather the sacrifice. Society has changed so much that God is no longer trusted. Father Matthew asks us to pray and discern about our generosity, and to ask God to increase our trust in Him. He can help us to guide our decisions on how we spend our time and money.
