NOTES:

 

THE GENEROUS LIFE LEADS TO A BLESSED LIFE

 

You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35

 

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25

 

THERE IS NOTHING MORE CHRISTLIKE THAN TO SELFLESSLY GIVE

 

3 MINDSETS THAT DEFINE A GENEROUS HEART

 

1. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH

 

You have planted much but harvest little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but cannot keep warm. Your wages disappear as though you were putting them in pockets filled with holes! Haggai 1:6

 

But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. For this is what the lord, the God of Israel, says: There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when the lord sends rain and the crops grow again!” 1 Kings 17:13-14

 

Then the woman told Elijah, “Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that the lord truly speaks through you.” 1 Kings 17:24

 

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13

 

2. THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH

 

Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed. Deuteronomy 28:4-6

 

Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:38

 

3. THERE IS INFINITELY MORE THAN ENOUGH

 

“The lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. Deuteronomy 28:8

 

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. 2 Corinthians 9:8-11

 

TAKE HOME

 

  • GIVE JOYFULLY

 

…the godly love to give! Proverbs 21:26

 

And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

 

  • GIVE INTENTIONALLY

 

You must each decide in your heart how much to give. 2 Corinthians 9:7

 

  • GIVE EXPECTING

 

YOU CAN’T OUT GIVE GOD!

 

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! Malachi 3:10
