“He Who Gives Generously”
Who is the most generous person that you know? What are they generous with? Time, finances, material possessions, hospitality? God’s generosity trumps any person’s generosity that you know—by a long shot. And, he is generous with the most valuable thing there is—life!
In these verses James urges us to ask God for wisdom, among other things. He explains that God “gives generously to all without finding fault,” highlighting that we have a generous God who gives freely to us who do not deserve it. Additionally, James exhorts us to approach God with a sturdy faith because otherwise we are like the waves of the sea—tossed about back and forth unsure of what we believe.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6
