It’s exciting to start the journey of Living Generously together as a church family!
If you were in worship on Sunday, then you met Frank, Re, and a few other characters that we’ll be following throughout the next four weeks. We’ll watch as they discover together what it means to “live generously.” If you weren’t able to make it to worship, please take a moment and watch the video above.
As I watched this first video, a few questions came to my mind:
- Do I give God my “best sheep” or my “left-overs”?
- Which is most challenging for me to give up: time, money, stuff, or space?
- How would our lives, and the world, change if we each began loving God and our neighbors with ALL of our heart, soul, strength, and mind?
- Who can I be a blessing to this week?
These questions are challenging ones. I recognize that I often do give God my “left-overs” and not my best. And I think the most challenging things for me to give up are my time and space.
This week I’m going to pray about how to be a blessing to others and for God to let me be more generous with my time and space. I’m also going to try and live with my eyes open to ways that I can bless others. Two thousand years ago God gave the greatest gift ever when he sent Jesus Christ for us and our salvation, and I’m going to let that gift be my motivation for giving to others.
