The Generosity of Worthiness

The Generosity of Worthiness


Psalm 23:5-6 (CEV)

You treat me to a feast, while my enemies watch. You honor me as your guest, and You fill my cup until it overflows. Your kindness and love will always be with me each day of my life, and I will live forever in your house, Lord.

If the Enemy can convince you that you’re nothing, he can also persuade you to do nothing. This is a mistake! If you want to walk in worthiness and receive, you must willingly give. This mirrors the generous nature of Jesus. And as a follower of His, you can be generous even amid your own need.

In the Kingdom of God, worthiness is not a limited resource to be hoarded but an abundant gift to be shared. The idea that there is no need for a power struggle in God’s Kingdom emphasizes the unity and shared purpose among believers. When we recognize our worthiness in Christ, we understand that we are part of a powerful union—a family of faith where everyone has a unique role and contribution. Rather than competing for recognition or resources, we can focus on embracing our worthiness and leveraging it for the benefit of others. This is not about self-deprecation but about recognizing that our worth is secure in Christ, freeing us to be generous even when we have our own needs.

Jesus is the ultimate example of generosity. His life, teachings, and sacrificial love demonstrate boundless giving. He provided for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those around Him, even when it meant personal sacrifice. As we seek to embrace our worthiness and follow in His footsteps, we can look to Jesus as our model of generosity. He teaches us that giving, whether it’s our time, resources, love, or compassion, is an act of faith and a reflection of our worthiness in Him. When we pour out from the plenty He provides, we participate in the abundance of His Kingdom and contribute to the well-being of others, further reinforcing our sense of worthiness and purpose.

When He is filling your cup, you’ll always have plenty—not nothing—to pour out.


How has the belief that you are “nothing” hindered your willingness to give to others or serve in your community? What specific steps can you take to shift from a mindset of scarcity to one of abundance in your giving and serving?

How does understanding that worthiness is not a limited resource but an abundant gift change your perspective on giving to others? How can you actively embrace your worthiness in Christ and extend generosity to those around you, regardless of your own circumstances?
