Open-handed God

God is generous! God is NOT stingy as some make him out to be - but rather he is lavish in his love and generous in his mercy. Our God is open-handed!

I imagine God as the Sower, scattering seed all over the place, even allowing birds to eat from his hands. When it comes to humanity, God treats us the same. Even though God knows that much of this generosity will be abused by some, neglected by others, and demanded by us, he continues to be open-handed.

"You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing." - Psalm 145:16

Prayer: Lord, may I acknowledge your great love today and may I seek to be generous with those that I encounter. Teach me to be open-handed in the way I live my life. Amen.

Living in Grace
