Giving Takes Guts

'...It is more blessed to give than to receive.' Acts 20:35 NKJ

Whether you find stepping up in front of people easy or you’d rather remain anonymous, giving takes guts. It takes initiative. Taking initiative is all about looking a situation up and down, and grabbing the opportunity within it—picking up the mess after the party is over, chatting to the newbie at church. It took initiative for the Good Samaritan to do what two others had failed to do. Read Luke 10:25–37 and see what sets him apart from the do–gooders… go on, we’ll wait here. You see, we don’t know whether that Samaritan was an outgoing guy, or whether he was shy, worried about what people would think and say. We don’t know if he found stepping out like that really simple or super difficult. Either way, he did it. Whatever he might have felt, he responded immediately. Jesus describes the Samaritan as a ‘neighbour to the man.’ (Luke 10:36 NIV) How amazing would it be for Christians (especially those who’d rather not make a big deal about it) to be known as people who are neighbours to everyone in every situation, jumping in with compassion when others don’t? For those of us who wouldn’t class ourselves as outgoing types, there may be an extra leap needed towards acts of generosity. But that leap, even when it’s difficult, is 100% worth it. That’s what Jesus is getting at when He says, ‘Go and do likewise.’ (Luke 10:37 NIV) Off you go, then.
