The way of Jesus is not the way of grasping or being tight-fisted with your time, treasure, comfort, or convenience. Of making sure that you always get exactly what you deserve or expect. The way of Jesus is The Way of Openhandedness. Of being magnanimous or generous and forgiving toward an adversary or someone less powerful than you. Of being willing to give up some of what you’ve been blessed with in order to be a blessing to others.
