Something pretty remarkable happened this week. I wanted to give to some other student’s outreaches. I looked at my budget, re-allocated funds and split $65 between a few classmates. The next day, I woke up to a text from my dad. Bleary eyed, I read how a friend from England just donated $650. Ten fold multiplication. Overnight.

I didn’t give in order to receive, but I find whatever I give away freely — without obligation or guilt — often comes back as more. This was such a fast example of it. God always outrageously out-gives anything we could give him.
