What would it look like for me to give in such a way that it changes me?

HOW to be generous...

Everyone gives. Everyone does not know how to be generous.

Generosity transcends random acts of giving.
The generous....
...give more
...save more
...consume less
Jesus says the generous are happier

Generosity is not our normal natural inclination

Normal or natural in our society is actually crazy

Generosity about the heart....Jesus wants our heart.
MYTH 1: GENEROSITY IS SPONTANEOUS

Generous people strategic in their giving
MYTH 2: GENEROSITY IS DETERMINED BY CASH FLOW

Generosity is built in, consistent and steady
MYTH 3: IT’S THE AMOUNT THAT COUNTS
MYTH 4: RICH PEOPLE CAN BE GENEROUS

Rich people are rich and generous people are generous. No natural correlation between the two.
GENEROSITY IS PREMEDITATED - Have a plan

GENEROSITY IS CALCULATED - Have an amount

GENEROSITY IS DESIGNATED - Pre-determined where it will go
Blessed = happy

Blessed does not refer to a moment in time, but to a way of living

If you order your life around generosity, you will be happy
