The Journey of a Generous Business Leader - Part IV
In this series, we’re discussing the five phases many leaders experience on their journey to becoming generous. So far, we've looked at "Poser", Transactional" and "Compulsory" givers. The fourth phase is the “Cheerful” giver.
Many rule following “Compulsory” givers reach the place of giving 10% of their income and feel they’ve reached their destination. They think they have met their obligation to God and that’s good enough.
This unfortunately robs them of the joy of giving from a grateful heart, rather than compulsion.
2 Corinthians 9:7 teaches, “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.”
If you desire to grow beyond compulsory giving and on to cheerful giving, consider increasing your giving each year. With the additional funds, give cheerfully to build God’s Kingdom.
