Do You Have A Ministry of Giving?
What could happen if Christians were truly generous with their resources, living out the joy of giving instead of the duty of tithing? Jesus called His followers to give with great generosity, which makes the tithe a good starting point and a helpful guideline as it reminds Christians to give proportionally to the Lord in accordance with His blessings, since God owns it all. But by New Testament standards, settling for ten percent can position you to neglect true generosit. Biblical generosity calls for loving God with all that you are, loving your neighbors as yourself, (Luke 10:25-37) and imitating the sacrificial example of Jesus (2 Corinthians 8:9; 1 John 3:16-18).
Instead of trying to create artificial standards and percentages for giving, give generously in keeping with Jesus’ clear command to love others as He loved and gave Himself (John 15:12-13; 2 Corinthians 8:9, 13-15; 1 John 3:16-18). God desires you to give your very best to Him, not your leftovers (Proverbs 3:9). After all, He gave you His very best–His only Son.
God offers you a life of great joy and a surprising route to take you there. Wherever you are at this moment, God invites you to embark on an adventure … Begin a journey of a lifetime — A Journey of Generosity.
“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
Proverbs 11:25-28 (New International Version)
Your journey of generosity is an adventure measured not in miles, but in personal transformation and growth. Sometimes smooth sailing, sometimes uncharted waters, but always a course that deepens your faith and relationship with God.
The message is not new, it is rooted in the timeless story told in scripture and lived out today … Explore and experience the generous life.
” … But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete
earnestness and in your love for us—see that you also excel in this grace of giving…”
2 Corinthians 8:7, 13-14 (New International Version)
