GENEROSITY DEFINED

English
Freedom from meanness or smallness of mind and character.

Hebrew
Overflowing with water.

Greek
To be ready at any moment to distribute.
Truth #1 - God Blesses generous people.

+ Jesus
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. - Luke 6:38

+ Solomon
One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. - Proverbs 11:24-25
Truth #2 - Generosity is a whole new way of living.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. - James 1:17
How to Practice Biblical Generosity:

+ Give the first and the best.
Prov. 3:9 Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops...

+ Give systematically.
1 Cor.16:2a On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money.

+ Give proportionally.
1 Cor. 16:2b …in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

+ Give sacrificially.
2 Cor. 8:3 For I can testify that they gave not only what they could afford, but far more. And they did it of their own free will.

+ Give worshipfully.
2 Cor. 9:7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
