GENEROUS LIKE MY FATHER
God is extravagantly generous and our generosity is a response and reflection of Him. He is a good Father who gives good gifts to His children.
(James 1:17; Ps 103:1-5; John 3:16)
The thread of God’s generosity weaves through His creation, covenants, Israel’s economics, the gospel and the Kingdom as He consistently models that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
(Ps 65:9-13; Deut 28:1-14, 7:9; 2 Cor 8:9)
God has blessed us in every way so that we can be generous in every way to advance the gospel. Joyfully giving our time, affection, talents and money, attracts God’s attention, craws heaven’s blessing, produces transformation, and enables Him to trust us with the true riches of the Kingdom.
(2 Cor 9:6-15; Acts 10:3-6; Mal 3:10-12)
Generosity confronts our poverty mentality, changing the way we interact with the world. No longer anxious because we mistakenly believe provision is scarce, we are confident that God multiplies resources and is eager to rescue and prosper people. (2 Cor 9:6-15; Phil 4:19; Eph 3:20-21)
Generosity releases joy, blessing, and favor into our lives. As we give, it will be given to us, pressed down, shaken together.
