“Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins, telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here .’”
Luke 10:34-35 (NLT)
Here we are shown the generosity of the Samaritan as he took care of the Jewish man’s needs. Often, God uses generosity as a doorway to sharing the gospel. Through ZMI, we have experienced and witnessed the generosity of many who have donated both their time and resources to bless others. It’s through this generosity that doors have been opened for us to share the Gospel with those who are lost. To be generous, means to show a readiness to give more of something than is strictly necessary or expected. Today, pray that God would develop a generous spirit within us and teach us how to sacrificially give of ourselves in order to further His kingdom.
