CS Lewis said:
“I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare.”
More than we can spare? That sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But thinking about it, could we not reword that to “more than we can easily . . . or comfortably spare?
The truth is, God keeps providing, even when we are stressed or otherwise blinded to His favor and provision. He uses and enables the weak and when we are focused on Him, He touches others through us even (or especially) when we least expect or have any awareness of it. Perhaps, then, this suggestion from Lewis isn’t so crazy?
