Are you a generous person? What qualifies someone as a generous person? Is it a billionaire philanthropist who gives millions to charity? Or someone contributing time to working at a soup kitchen? Do generous people look at the world differently? This four-week series examines the biblical understanding of generosity. By looking at the character of God, the good Samaritan, the widow’s offering, and Paul’s encouragement to give generously, we will see that God wants us to be generous in all areas of our life.
From Paul’s teaching to the church in Corinth, we see that believers are called to be generous in their giving of money to those in need and generous in supporting what God is doing in the world. A person should decide what they will give, having faith that God will take care of their financial needs.
