Cultivating Generosity As A LifeStyle
Paul writes to the Corinthians some sharpening thoughts about giving. The sessions listed below will hopefully offer you a new set of glasses by which you can view the idea of money differently that you may have previously viewed it. What I hope will happen to you as a reader is that you will put away you old concepts about giving, rather you concept that tithing is God’s way for you to give. I trust that “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God (2 Cor. 9.11). Luke records in Acts the saying of Jesus, “it is more blessed to give that to receive.” What better authority and the one who brought to us the kingdom of God. His words should remind us about the ultimate character of God that is demonstrated time and time again in the story presented in Scripture: God is a generous giver. His character is to give abundantly. One of his highest goals is to have his children developed his charactristics of generosity giving in all area s of our lived.The sessons presented below will hopefully help you along the way of becoming generousity beyond you present lifestyle.

Jesus Followers


There are many synonyms to use for the word believer, which is the most common word for a person who has "converted" to follow Jesus. I have chosen "Jesus follower(s) or follower(s) of Jesus instead of the word believer in these presentations to allow the reader an opportunity to move away from the idea of believer which conjures up the possible thought of "ascent" to a set of doctrines that have been assembled by different groups over the centuries and show up in this day and age as a set of statements posted on web sites and other written material. These sets of beliefs are suggested by many as the ones that one should ascent to so that upon death the one who assents can go to heaven, i.e., just believe and you are good to go. Jesus followers/followers of Jesus suggest an action that one should take. Remember, Jesus told his disciples to follow him. Yes, belief is important, but one must move beyond belief to action.
