The Generosity Experiment: Day 4
Finding out what happens when you look for opportunities to give. To start from Day 1, click here.
I’m running late. No excuse, but I was partying last night. No, really, it’s true. Getting in past my bedtime has impacted my day and this post. But it was well worth it.
Stepping in from the cold night air, a felt hat greeted us with simple donations and slips of paper representing the interests of those we would soon meet. Rooms were filled with laughter, grandma’s china along with auntie’s depression glass, the aromas of mulling spices, dark chocolate melt-in-our-mouth goodness, and saints who love Jesus and passionately make a difference. My heart and racing mind felt at home.
My stomach filled with warm homemade squash soup, Seth boisterously appeared in the center of loud connecting. With hat in hand and a wad of cash, the game began. Slips were pulled one by one, with new friends sharing stories about Holy Spirit power impacting our town through the names of ministries and non-profits. With the last crumpled piece unwrapped and announced, over $300 was lovingly passed to the Cobblestone Project.
My husband and I left with empowered love, whirling thoughts of helping new friends impact the kingdom, and the satisfaction of multiplied giving. Thank you Seth and Amber (and the cutest 3 little soon-to-be men you’ve ever seen) for such a brilliant heart-thought, having the follow-through to do what others only talk about, and allowing the rest of us be a part of the giving.
How will your Christmas party be different this year?
