Lent day 19: Who is Amminadab?
Luke 3: 33 “the son of Amminadab”
His name means ‘my people is willing or generous.’
Like many of the Old Testament people who never lived up to their names, Amminadab may have fallen short and yet it only shows the possibility that lies in the heart of God for His people.
I can say YES I am going to be a person of abundance (John 10:10).
I can say YES I can be a mirror copy of God who gives every good gift (James 1:17).
I can say YES when I see someone in need and I can meet it (1 John 3:17).
I can say YES to being a joyful giver (Psalm 16:11).
I can say YES to giving way above a standard measure (Luke 6:38).
In our journey to Easter be reminded that the life, death and resurrection was the gracious generosity of God: “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9
Say YES today and have a willing generous heart. Be a YES person.
