Generosity, who needs it?

"Preparing for Generosity"

 2 Corinthians 8:10-9:8

 

“Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”
Matthew 6:21

v10, “Here is my advice: It would be good for you to finish what you started…”

Match both: Enthusiasm and Follow-through.

Ecclesiastes 5:10, “Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!”

 

So how do we Prepare for Generosity?

1.   Move Past FUZZY

v. 11b-12: “Give in proportion to what you have. Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give accord to what you have, not what you don’t have.”

Malachi 3:10: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse …. If you do, I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!” 

2.   Learn New Math

v14: “Right now you have plenty and can help those who are in need.”

Proverbs 11:24-25: “Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”

9:6: “Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.”

3.   Get to the Hard Work

9:5: “…make sure the gift you promised is ready. But I want it to a willing gift…”

  • Word #1:  Budget

  • Word #2: Tithe

  • Word #3: Debt

8:21: “For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.”

4.   Step into Trust
