Being Generous to God

 “I tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all the rest . . . From her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood (Luke 21:1-4). Being generous is core to who we are as Christians. And Catholics and Christians have been known over the centuries to be generous, even with their lives. The gift of the self has been at the center of the prosperity of the Chris-tian faith. As a matter of fact, it was an example set by our Lord Jesus Christ himself, when he sacrificed his life on the cross for our salvation. And so, if there were and are men and women willing to be generous with their lives, then being generous with our resources and material goods should ordinarily become an integral part of our live who are God’s Children. And with a grate-ful heart, we must thank those among you who over the years have been very generous to our parish. You have sustained the continuous preaching of Christ’s gospel here. We thank you. But, at the same time the work of God still needs to be done; we still need to bring up our children in the catholic faith, and that is why we renew the call to your sense of generosity. Also bear in mind that our generosity does not go unrewarded.
Talking about generosity and the reward therein, Qoheleth says, “Cast your bread unto the waters; after a long time, you may find it (Ecclesiastes 11.1-6). I n another text, Jesus says “Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in turn be measured out to you” (Luke 6:38). And in relation to the spread of the gospel and building up his church, Jesus was very emphatic when he says “…And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because he is a disciple -amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward” (Matthew 10:40ff).
Being who we are therefore, does not call for exception. That is to say, we cannot be too poor not to give, neither can we be too rich to say we have given too much. Two instances in the Bible are worth noting in this regard. The first is the poor widow in Luke 21, who put into the temple treasury the last penny or cent she had to live on; and the second was the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17, who first fed Elijah with the last portion of her flour only enough for her and her son to eat before they die. Therefore, all of us irrespective of our social status are called to be generous. The church needs you, the parish needs you, and above all, Jesus needs you to further his good works through the church. And be rest assured of God’s abundant reward.

What a simple, yet wonderful way to serve God and others!
