Generosity, who needs it?

"Putting Generosity into Practice"

2 Corinthians 8:1-15

“An evil person borrows and never pays back; a good person is generous and never stops giving.”  Psalm 37:21 (CEV)

"Freely you have received, freely give." Matthew 10:8 (NIV)

Generous heart declaration:
Look at all the needs around you.
We can do something! I can do more!

Key Verse: “Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7

 How do you put Generosity into Practice?

1.   REMEMBER what Generosity Looks Like

Four Generosity Principles:

Unconditional

See v1-2.

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

Bountiful

See v3.

Luke 6:38, “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”

Joyful

See v2.

2 Corinthians 9:7, “God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”

Voluntary

See v8. 

2.   RESOLVE to follow a Generous Example

See v8-9.

Final Thought: You are blessed to be a blessing.

Be sure to pick up your copy of The Treasure Principle and if you have children, get your Financial Peace Jr. kit.
