The Blessings of Generosity
Giving and being generous, they are two different things.
Scarcity mindset: God supplies, we consume, we lack, we fear
Abundance mindset: God supplies, we give, He multiplies, faith grows
We are going to Give spontaneously
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
We are going to give strategically
8 But generous people plan to do what is generous, and they stand firm in their generosity.
We are going to give sacrificially
41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
