In seeking to live generously, we must first recognize we are recipients of the greatest act of generosity ever known: Jesus’ death on the cross. “Greater love has no one than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
We submit that all our blessings come from God (James 1:17), and we are simply stewards of what He has entrusted to us. And so no amount of money or percentage of income can buy the favor of God. His favor is shown to us because of the atoning, sacrificial love of Jesus Christ.
We are free to generously and joyfully pour out our time, energy, talents and resources on others across our city and the world (2 Corinthians 8:1-5 and 9:6-8) as an act of gratitude to our Lord and Savior!
“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which he has given you.”
— Deuteronomy 16:17
