Amplify mercy

And don’t forget to do good and give to those in need. These are the offerings that please God. Heb. 13:16

Austin is just finishing up a 24 hour giving campaign called Amplify Austin. It’s a very cool campaign but if you didn’t get in on it don’t beat yourself up. Jesus responded to needs by meeting them on the spot with helpful acts of love and mercy. Whether organized or individual, planned or spontaneous, the beauty of giving is when it is motivated by mercy and love instead of guilt and obligation.

Lord, give me your heart of mercy so that I give because I love rather than because I “should.”
