Be a Cheerful Giver

Daily Devotion for December 16, 2017


Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
—2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV

In the hustle and bustle of Christmas be aware of opportunities to give. Something as simple as letting someone get in line in front of you at the store or a phoning a friend you’ve lost touch with can spread a little heavenly joy.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for pleasure I feel when I bring joy to others. The more I give of myself, the more blessed my life becomes.
