GenerosityHave you ever thought of the fact that scripture never really records Jesus giving any money to anyone? The closest he got was having ‘the boys’ pull some coins out of a fish’s mouth to pay taxes (Matthew 17:24-27). Yet when you think of generous living, Jesus leads the way. Why do you think that is? Could it be because Jesus knew that giving is not just about money, but an action of the heart? People tend to look at the size of the gift or the nobility of the cause, but Jesus looks at the heart of the giver - a radically different perspective on generosity.
We want you to understand that generosity is not just about our money, our time, or our abilities - it's really about deepening our faith in God. It's about a life change, both heart and mind. It's about transformation - whole life transformation that is so awesome, it even surprises us! It's about surrendering ourselves and returning our money, time, and abilities to their rightful owner - God. At Lakeview we believe your home church is the place to begin a journey of generosity that takes many forms - a journey to live like Jesus.
