#“Counter Culture Generosity” (Part 1)
#1. Preparation “Offer to God…”
PRE is the key.
Lack of preparation will cause you to miss the point.
Consumer Christians miss out on the joy of contribution.
Three principles of preparation (Luke 12:13-21):
A. Perspective (Luke 12:15)
Until Jesus is enough, no person or thing will ever be.
B. Planning (Luke 12:16-19)
Isaiah 32:8 NLT
C. Purpose (Luke 12:20-21)
#2. Praise “…a sacrifice of thanksgiving…”
Psalm 118:1 NIV
Gratitude is the gateway to generosity.
Philippians 4:11 ESV – “…I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.”
In what areas have I already prepared to be generous this year?
How can I prepare to praise God through my gratitude and generosity?
