"Give, Give"

Proverbs 30:15 "The leech has two daughters; "Give" and "Give" they cry."

Now, this isn't talking about the song by Relient K "Give, give, give, until there's nothing left." No, it is talking about greed. I looked the word up in a dictionary and the only antonym for the word was generosity. And I thought, am I generous with what I have?

Well sometimes, when I feel like it! But generosity doesn't just have to do with possessions, it also has to do with how we spend our time. Like, by serving my family, I am being generous, you know what I mean? So sometimes, as teens we don't have a lot of money or stuff, but we can be generous with our time!

Another thing, praying does a lot more than giving, because God does a lot more than we. So pray. But by all means! It is very good to give, because what has Christ done for us? Given all! So like the Relient K song we need to, "Give, give, give..."

All Christ,
~Kade

p.s. Tell me some things that you do, or that you can do, to be more generous.

"God does a lot more than we."

I think the first step to being genorous is to pay attention to what people need. So talk to people, keep your eyes open and be ready to be pushed by the Spirit to do something about it.
