How to Become a More Generous Person
Matt Brown • • Week 1
In a culture where greed and selfishness are so predominant, how do we allow ourselves to be marked by generosity? Generosity is a lot more than what you do with your money. Jesus was incredibly generous, yet He had little to nothing to His name. He was generous with His time, His affection, and His words. Even if you don't have much, how can you be more generous in your life? What do you need to sacrifice so you can give more?
WHAT YOU CAN DO THIS WEEK
Ask God to help you discern where in your life you tend to be greedy (time, things, words, money, affection, etc.) What are your thoughts and feelings about what was revealed? What dangers do you see in being greedy in this area? Talk to God about how generosity could help you escape from the control of this sin and bring God’s blessings instead? Picture what your life could look like in the distant future by becoming a more generous person.
