- Ragged-Edge Faith and Reckless Generosity Chuck Swindoll reflects on the strong faith of his older brother, Orville, and on Orville’s ability to trust in Jesus to meet the needs of his family. We live in a materialistic society, where our security seems to come from what we own and have stashed away. Chuck suggests that whether we have abundance or are seeing lean times, our security must come only from God and His promise to provide for all of our needs. Only then can we be truly generous.

The list of suggested ways to give of yourself to others is a refreshing reminder of what really ministers to people and of what exhibits God’s supernatural love in ways that are becoming increasingly rare.

- Tightwads Using a rather extreme example, Chuck Swindoll illustrates the pointlessness of being stingy with our wealth and possessions in this life. He asserts that whoever is reluctant to part with some of his or her assets is also one who doesn’t dare to dream big dreams or attempt great things for God. This article challenges us to evaluate our generosity and our vision of what God can accomplish through our faith.
