Sermon Series: Enough: Finding Joy in Simplicity and Generosity
Sermon: Defined by Generosity
God so loved the world that he gave. Humanity is created in the image of God. By these two simple and clear belief statements from scripture we can get a hint about who we are intended to be. We are tempted to hoard rather than purposefully use our resources. Fear, insecurity, a false sense of self and selfishness pull us in the direction of self-gratification instead of allowing us to develop into the persons God dreams us to be. Have you experienced the transforming power of giving, of seeing the greater impact of the gifts than something else to dust? Allow yourself to experience the true desire of God by living a generous life.
Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:17-19, Proverbs 11:24-25, Proverbs 22:9
