Generous Living 101

Back to Growth Plan List

What does it look like to live a generous life and give where God calls us to give?

Generous Christians are willing and able to give abundantly to whatever need God puts on their hearts. When a Christian gives generously (of time or money), he or she is abundantly blessed by God according to His promises in the Bible. God modeled ultimate generosity when He gave His Son for our salvation.

In that case, shouldn’t we be jumping at the chance to give out of gratitude for what He has done for us?

Sometimes, though, there are things that keep us from living as generously as we would like. Our own mismanagement of money or time can keep us from giving, or fear can keep us from trusting God to provide for our needs.

This Growth Plan will help you understand the principles of generosity and how to overcome personal challenges you may encounter when it comes to living generously.

Trusting God Is the Beginning of Generosity

If you can trust God with other areas of your life (like salvation), then you can learn to trust Him with your finances, too.
