WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I AM GENEROUS?

 

  1. IT HONORS GOD

“Honor the Lord with your wealth and the best part of everything you produce.” Proverbs 3:9 (NLT)

“You insult your Maker when you exploit the powerless; when you’re kind to the poor, you honor God.” Proverbs 14:31 (MSG)

  1. IT DRAWS ME CLOSER TO GOD

“‘Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.’” Matthew 6:19-21 (MSG)

  1. IT MAKES ME MORE LIKE JESUS

“Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!”
Proverbs 21:26 (NLT)

“‘Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,’ says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, ‘I will open the windows of heaven for you.

  1. IT REVEALS MY HEART

“And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven?” Luke 16:11 (NLT)

  1. IT BRINGS GOD’S BLESSINGS & MULTIPLIES MY MONEY

“A generous person will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25 (NIV)
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.” 2 Corinthians 9:10-11 (NLT)

  1. GENEROSITY WILL BE REWARDED IN HEAVEN

“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.”
1 Timothy 6:18-19 (NLT)

“Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.” Luke 16:9 (NLT)
