Today's Bible Verse:

2 Corinthians 9:7
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: A Cheerful Giver

While Paul is speaking about financial giving here, I believe being a cheerful giver goes beyond the scope of monetary giving. Serving our brothers and sisters is also a form of giving.

Now, have you noticed how some people just enjoy being miserable? They like to complain about anything and everything, but especially about the things they do for other people. A long time ago, someone (although I can't remember who) told me, "Never do something for someone if you're going to complain about it later." They went on, "Only serve, give, or do what you're willing to do happily, without regret or complaint." It was a good lesson to learn. I only wish that I always lived by it.
