"Made in his [God's] image, human beings are in fact hardwired to be generous."
TAKE THE RISK: A journey to Jesus-like generosity . . .

1. Defy your selfishness
2 Corinthians 8:3b-4
". . . Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord's people.
Donald Wildmon . . .
"At the very heart of the Christian gospel is a cross--the symbol of suffering and sacrifice, of hurt and pain and humiliation and rejection. I want no part of the Christian message which does not call me to involvement, requires of me no sacrifice, takes from me no comfort, requires of me less than the best I have to give.”
* Jesus is not attached to what we possess as we are

* Jesus is concerned about the power of our possessions over us
3. Determine to pursue 'giving excellence'
Pastor Rob Ketterling . . .
"Hearts touched by God respond with a tenth."
4. Don't settle for good intentions
* I'm not the giving type

* I'll give when I have more

* I can't give enough to make a difference
