Righteous Generosity: A Psalm Series Post

Hey friends – today I’m guest posting over at Echoes of my Heart and I’d love for you to come read what I’ve written! I’m writing based on Psalm 112 as a part of a month long series based on the Psalms. Want a little snippet? Okay, you twisted my arm 🙂

 

 “I believe that I’m a loving, caring and generous person who really, truly cares about helping people. But sometimes when I’m not careful, my actions and heart do not align and I find my good deeds turning into fuel for pride. Instead of having a heart for people, I develop a heart for appreciation. I start giving for the grateful look on my friend’s face. I start hosting to impress people with my amazing baking skills and the hope that people will talk about how great a time they’re having. I give people clothes but don’t warn them that with the bag of clothes comes the expectation that we’ll now be best friends forever. Okay, I’m exaggerating a little, but that’s how pride works. It sneaks into the good things we’re doing for others and turns them into the selfish things we’re actually doing for ourselves.”
