Instead, be generous and lend them whatever they need. – Deut 15:8 (NLT)
As a teenager, you probably don’t have a lot of money. You’re not working a job, and it can be easy to simply spend what you have on yourself since you don’t have a lot of it.
And while it’s true you probably don’t have as much money as an adult to be giving to others, as a teenager, there are still many ways to be generous.
Can you give your time to someone? Maybe you can spend a few hours helping your brother clean his room. Perhaps you can mow your neighbor’s lawn. All these things require little or no money but still are ways you can be generous right now.
Today’s Challenge: How Can I Be Generous Today?
So today, begin to look for ways you can be generous. Ask God to give you ideas. He might show you that you could give some of your clothes away or a simple way you can help.
Whatever it is, know this. Generosity is fun. As you practice a lifestyle of generosity, you’ll see how fun it is to give to help those around you.
Pray: Jesus, I ask for your help. Show me ways that I can be generous to those around me. Open my eyes to see opportunities to bless those around me today. In Your Name, I pray, Amen.
