Sy Huffer, Lead Minister, challenges us to pursue a life of generosity:
QUESTION 1: PRAY
How do your dreams need to be changed to Gospel dreams? Tim Keller says, “Prayer sanctifies your imagination.” Ask the Lord to make your dreams Gospel dreams.
QUESTION 2: SPEAK
Who needs to hear this wisdom from the Lord about peace and contentment in relation to money? How can you teach your children and those in your circle of influence the principles of contentment when it comes to money?
QUESTION 3: GROW
What obstacle of contentment do you need to overcome: discontentment, debt or greed? Where do you need to grow in your management of your finances: living on a budget, wise saving, getting out of debt or pursuing generosity?
QUESTION 4: LOVE
How can you love people with your finances? How can you grow in your generosity this year? What does taking a step up on the ladder of giving look like for you and your family?
There are many opportunities for pursuing generosity! One that we choose at this time of the year is ONE LESS GIFT.
During this time of year, we take up the challenge of buying one less gift for ourselves and donate that money to acts of compassion for people who are in great need. You can read more in our One Less Gift catalog.
