“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
What does generosity mean to you?
When was a time you were blessed by someone else's generosity?
You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
Acts 20:35 NLT
Does anyone have a story that they are willing to share about a time in their life when they were able to be a blessing to someone else by being generous?
If we "believe" that it is more blessed to give than to receive, then why don’t we give more?
What is "the tithe?"
Why don't we think of our money as belonging to God?
"Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruts of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."
Proverbs 3: 9-10
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
