God loves a cheerful giver. But it actually means one gives with generous hilarity, rolling around on the ground about it, bent over with belly laughing. Ever do that? I’ve laughed to where I can’t breathe.
That’s what I’m seeing with our Reading outreaches. People are SO cheerfully donating things, it’s amazing. Now, I’m also experiencing some kickback, but remember when new doors of opportunity open up it’s “with many adversaries.”
When adversarial opportunities present themselves, I often hear the Holy Spirit say “opportunity.” So that’s how I look at it. Oh, this thing is now coming against us, what an opportunity for God to show up strong & beat the snot out of it.
