We should be grace dispensers and practice grace giving. God does not want to compete with our possessions. He instructs us to live soberly, righteously, and Godly.
Live your life in super abounding (above and beyond) faith, speech, and studying God’s Word. We prove our sincere love through a dedication to know hateful speech or divisive behavior does not belong in the church among Christians. God can temper and change anybody. Words can destroy your influence. Sincere love should cross all boundaries. Jesus came not to be served but to serve. He gave all He had and suffered all we could ever suffer to ransom us from all sin. He left the riches of Heaven and lived as a human being rejected by his own. As man he had no place to put His head. As God He said come to me and never thirst again.
Gracegiving is living like Jesus did. We are commanded to love our neighbor more than we love ourselves. We weren’t instructed to not love ourselves, but never more than we love our neighbor.
12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
2 Corinthians 8:7-9
7 But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us—see that you abound in this grace also.
8 I speak not by commandment, but I am testing the sincerity of your love by the diligence of others.
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
