Super Bowl Edition D.J. Jarrett February 2, 2014
“Generosity is not on a list of rules handed down from on high and it isn’t just a financial principle. It is a response to the love of God. When our hearts are aligned with the Father’s, we respond by loving others, and living generous lives.” Living Generously, p. 25
John 3:30 “He must increase, but I must decrease”(NKJV)
1 st Timothy 6:17-19 Instructions to the Rich 17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, 19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. (NKJV)
Ephesians 6: 7-8 7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. (NKJV)
1 -Jesus knew who had the power 2 - He knew where He came from 3 - He knew where He was going when He died.
What is the difference between telling someone what you can do to help and asking someone what you can do to help?
Generosity is saying: I am willing to do whatever it takes to help you, this stretches us to places we don’t always feel comfortable.

Which is the easiest for you to reach for – a pen to write the check or the ladle to serve others? Question to ponder for the week – Where is God asking me to roll up my sleeves and grab a ladle?
