Intentful relationship leads to intentful generosity. This then inspires intentful giving which opens the door for intentful relationship. The idea of relationship is meant to be a closed system of endlessly spirating intentful acts that prove and proof the true nature of our faith. The gospel goes out and through because it is a work of God that works in the hearts of men. When we live by it, it causes humanity to act counterintuitive to their fallen nature. Instead of devouring each other, they become devoted to each other. Instead of ending up helpless, they become effective helpers. This trend touches all areas of their life, from family to finance. Many who are not generous, or trusting, are those who have never interacted with the gospel in any meaningful way. If we are to create the spiration of God’s fruit in our Christian culture, the gospel and a spirit of thanks for and devotion to each other’s well being will be of utmost importance to its success.
