Giving Day 6 - Joy!
Pray: "Lord, one of the things you definitely want FOR me is JOY. Giving isn’t supposed to be a drag or a guilt trip. Help me see beyond what I am giving up and see how my gift could change someone’s story. Help me see that I can truly have joy when I give. Change my perspective!"
Read 2 Corinthians 9:7 (same as Day 3) and underline or highlight it in your Bible.
Write down 3 things that bring joy to your life.
Write down BEING GENEROUS on your list. If this isn’t true of you, ask God to make it true of you.
The 40-Day Giving Challenge is about giving something up in order to give something away. Ask God to bring several things to mind that would cause you to be joyful when you give that thing up. Maybe knowing how your gift will meet a need would help. Maybe being able to give a gift directly to someone would do it. Think and pray about this and write down a few things that come to mind.
