People give out of many different motivations: guilt, duty, obligation, fear, pride, etc. But for the Christian, the overwhelming motivation for all of our giving is gratitude. This week Corey Widmer walks us through the Apostle Paul's belief that the surest proof of a heart that has been changed by the good news of Jesus is a life of radical generosity.
The mark of a Christian is being radically generous, and generosity should be the measure of our giving. But what is generosity? How do we measure it? Steve Hartman addresses these questions as we study of 1 Chronicles 29 in light of the wealth we have in Christ.
Is poverty or prosperity a greater danger to our relationship with God? Can we be generous when we are concerned that we'll not have enough for ourselves? Join us this Sunday as Steve Hartman turns to 1 Timothy 6 for guidance on these questions.
"But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand."
