What would it look like for me to give in such a way that it changes me?
Everyone gives. Everyone is not generous.

Generosity is not random acts of giving
The financially generous give more, save more and consume less
The life ordered around generosity is happier
What we do with our money dictates where our hearts are and go
Generosity:
The premeditated, calculated, designated emancipation of financial assets
Obstacle to generosity:
Thinking and behavior as a consumer and not a generous person

Consumer mindset:
“If it comes to me, then it is for me

Result of consumer living:
Debt and no financial margin
How much more money would it take to break the habit of spending more than you make?

Answer: More money than you will get at one time

A self-control issue, not an income issue
How much more money would it take to break the habit of using debt to get what you want now?

A contentment issue, not a money issue
How much more money would it take to create financial margin and live within your means?

A discipline issue
How much more money would it take to erase financial concerns and stop worrying about money?

Worry is a spiritual issue, not a money issue.
Consumption assumption: If it comes to me, it is for me

Those with the consumption assumption are greedy
Yes, the greedy still give...

Transform from being a consumer to one who is generous.
Rich people are rich. Generous people are generous. There is no correlation between the two

Who will get what you prepared for yourself? SOMEBODY ELSE

v. 21: “This” refers to total loss
Generous people don't assume all is for them to consume

Generous mindset: All I have is not for me
How to be generous? Change jobs

Owner to manager....YOUR'E FIRED!
