Holding on tightly to what we have takes a lot of energy and stress. It can be easy for money to wrap itself around our hearts and when that happens our very life can be squeezed out from us. When that happens our relationships can become strained and broken. So as we hold on tightly we find that we have lost what is truly most valuable.
So why do we give? Because our generous and loving God wants us to be free. And He wants to use not just our money, but also our time and talents and energy, to set others free. In a tight-fisted world, living with our hands open, with a posture of trust and generosity, can give us great joy, it can transform us, and it can change our world. We hope you will begin or continue to pray about how God is calling you to live with open-hands.
