Live Generously

Jesus is generosity in the flesh. He gave all that He had – His power, life, and comfort – for the salvation of others and the restoration of creation. As His people, we’re called to be more than recipients of His generosity. We are invited to be imitators of His generosity as we experience the joy of living a generous life.

  • Generosity and Wealth

    Oftentimes the church gets criticized for talking about money too much, even though it's one of the more frequent topics that Jesus teaches about. Jesus doesn't teach about money in a way that is self-serving for the church. Rather, He calls us to be generous with what we have for the sake of others.

  • Generosity & Power

    You may not realize it, but you have power. There are areas of your life where you have varying degrees of influence or control. As followers of Jesus, we're called to be generous in all aspects of our life including our power. But being generous with our power looks a whole lot different than what we'd expect.

  • Generosity & Hospitality

    In the Gospels, Jesus tells a story about a big party and gives some practical party advice. However, it's more than just some advice about being hospitable - it's a reflection of God's party when Jesus returns.

  • Generosity & Relationships

    Most of us think being generous is only about money, but living a generous life means being generous in all areas of our life - not just one. What does it mean to be generous in our relationships? For Christians, it means one thing - forgiveness.
