Creating a Culture of Generosity
Open Handed Living in a Tight-fisted World
Just as baptism is an outward sign and visible sign of a growing relationship with Jesus, so generosity is an outward sign of the Holy Spirit continually grow and expand within your life. We love to give, share and serve because we know we cannot outgive God. We never want anyone to give out guilt or pressure, but as a natural response to God’s extravagant grace in their life. Generosity is both a privilege and an act of defiance against the me-first culture.
Gratitude and Generosity are inseparably linked.
GRATITUDE is breathing in – accepting and expanding our lives with the unseen power of Grace. Where Grace Happens, Generosity Happens!
GENEROSITY is breathing out – releasing our anxiety, greed and fear to God. We are the happiest when we release our gifts and trinkets and invest in God’s kingdom and mission.
A grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference. Where Grace Happens, Generosity Happens.
