Up until the day my friend Joan went home to heaven, she enjoyed giving.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Up until the day my friend Joan went home to heaven, she enjoyed giving. She wanted to encourage her friends to also give generously. And so, since she owned a jewelry company, Joan created a unique set of charms for a necklace, just for her loved ones. The necklace has two shovels: the inscription on the smaller one says, "You can never out-give God." And the larger spade? It says, "He has the bigger shovel!" What a joyful way to live! And Second Corinthians chapter 8 describes that joy well where it says: "Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy… welled up in rich generosity." Friend, join me this month in giving unreservedly of your time and talents to the Lord. And don’t be worried about your limited strength or resources – just give. And give generously with overflowing joy. After all, God has a much bigger shovel than you.
