Proverbs 11:24-26

A generous life is a blessed life.

He who is generous will be blessed, for he
gives some of his food to the poor.
Proverbs 22:9

2 Myths:

Generosity is about money.

Regardless of its size, a gift will never truly be a generous gift until it comes from a generous heart.

Generosity is an event.

1) The paradox of generosity.

When we give we receive and what we give grows.

For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it;
but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
Matthew 16:25

2) The practice of generosity.

A heart of generosity will produce hands that are generous.

In all labor there is profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
Proverbs 14:23

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure – pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.
Luke 6:38

I shovel out the money, and God shovels it back
to me – but God uses a bigger shovel.
R. G. Letourneau

 In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Acts 20:35

Generosity opens the doors of my life so the
blessing of God can flow through.

3) The power of generosity.
