Week 2 & 3 Review
Practicing generosity is founded upon the belief that God owns it all.
Generosity is fueled when God and what He provides is enough.

The Myth
I can’t afford to be generous.

The Problems
1 - We don’t properly steward the income God has provided. 
[FPU slide as a separate slide here]
2 - We don’t consider the stored resources God has provided.
3 - We are not willing to part with more of what God has provided.
4 - We think our contribution won’t matter.

The Truth
We ALL can find ways to be generous with the resources God has given us.

Mark 12:41-44
Acts 4:32-37

It’s the level of our sacrifice rather than the level of our gift that bring the most pleasure to God!

Our willingness to surrender future comfort, security and happiness reveals our real attitude about generosity.

We stretch our level of generosity when we are willing to liquidate meaningful assets for God’s purpose.


We will be known as generous people when we are willing to use ANY available resources to practice generosity.
