A good definition of Biblical Generosity is “the recognition that God owns everything and we as recipients of His grace and love, enjoy the privilege of participating in God’s care for others.” Biblical generosity is a choice we make and is a reflection of our heart!
Treasures in Heaven
Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Honor the Lord First
Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce;”
According to Means
2 Corinthians 8:3 “For they gave according to their means….and beyond their means, of their own accord.”
A Cheerful Giver
2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Excel in Grace
2 Corinthians 8:7 “But as you excel in everything…. see that you excel in this act of grace (giving) also.
Thanksgiving to God
2 Corinthians 9:11 “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.”
Prayerfully ask the Lord to lead and guide you in faithfully sharing the financial blessings He has entrusted to you for His ministry at Living Hope! Thank you for your generosity!
