Generosity is a character trait that is consistent with being a spirit filled Christian. There are numerous references to giving to the poor and sharing with those in need. We are told to be generous givers when it comes to the needs of the church. What came to mind was the parable of the sower and soils that Jesus told. It starts like this,
(Matthew 13:3 KJV) And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;The picture of the sower is scattering the seed. I imagine taking a hand full and sweeping my arm around and trying to produce an even spread. I am sure that it takes a lot of practice to do it right.
Solomon is probably aware that we need more practice in scattering, whether it be slipping a few dollars to a struggling family in the church or speaking up about Jesus in a public meeting.
So? Practice takes place two ways, planned and spontaneous. I need to improve in both.
Don't we all!
Some more than others.
Grace and peace
