Extravagance can be seen as beyond average and ordinary that the typical response to seeing it or experiencing it is nothing short of WOW. It sometimes seems over the top and possibly way too much. We find ourselves at times saying under our breath, why do they need all of that stuff? Or how can they have that much when I only have this much? Extravagance, if we’re honest, can make us a little uncomfortable.
This Access Point is important because we believe we should always strive to live extravagant lives.
The point and challenge is to live an extravagant life in our loving, forgiving, listening, giving, serving, encouraging, appreciating, celebrating, praying, welcoming, and trusting (add to this).
May we not get caught up in the material extravagance that has the potential to leave us empty, but to experience and share what we have with extravagant generosity.
This week may we choose to live the example of the ONE who extravagantly loves us, forgives us and gives to us everything we need to complete our mission.
Verse of the week:
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
