What Matters: Generous Relationships

Faith and Life Podcast

Release Date: 11/10/2019

It’s been said about God, that while God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present, the Lord willingly limited such attributes for the sake of being generous to His people.  God withholds judgment, limiting anger, for the sake of forgiveness. Jesus limits his involvement in the ongoing ministry of the disciples by empowering his disciples to serve as he serves.  The Omnipresent nature of God is limited in space and time for 33 years within the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth in a particular context, Israel, so that the mission of the Kingdom of God can be generously shared with the world around us.  Limits need not be limiting. We put limits on ourselves, as God has done and continues to do, for the sake of sharing generously with our neighbor.
Next Step: Limit the propensity to live with the attitude, “It’s a free country.  I can do whatever I want” for the sake of being generous and kind to your neighbor.
