Share Generously - by giving the best of your time, abilities, and financial resources to improve the world, further God’s Kingdom, and connect people to Jesus.
How generous are you? Does your own personal willingness to give reflect a spirit of scarcity in life, or abundance of good that God has given you? Living as a disciple of Jesus cannot be fully realized without generosity. And once we see that the opportunity to give is a favor God does for us, we will respond with the best of our time, abilities, and financial resources to improve the world, further God’s kingdom, and connect people to Jesus.
2 Corinthians 8:1-7 1 We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, 2 for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. 3 For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, 4 begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints— 5 and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us. 6 Accordingly, we urged Titus that as he had started, so he should complete among you this act of grace. 7 But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you[c]—see that you excel in this act of grace also.
