Week OneGive as an act of worship

Scripture: Exodus 35; Philippians 4; Malachi 1

God is worthy of our worship. He is matchless. There is no one and nothing to compare with Him. And one of the most transforming ways we worship God is through becoming generous and joyful givers.

Week TwoGive to Invest in Eternity

Scripture: Luke 12:13-21; 16:1-9

Some investments simply don't work out - they decline in value or disappear altogether. In fact, from the Bible's point of view, all earthly wealth will ultimately lose all of its value unless it is converted into something of eternal value - PEOPLE. God loves people because people are made in His image, and they will all live forever, with Him or apart from Him. So invest your life - your treasure, your time, your talent - in helping people find and follow Jesus.

Week ThreeGive Because We Are Rich

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:17-19; Luke 19; Matthew 25:14-30

We are rich! Of course, we normally don't think of ourselves as rich because we measure our wealth only in comparison to people who have more than we have. But compared to the rest of the world, we are rich, both materially and spiritually. And because we are rich, God will hold us responsible.

Week FourGive to Break Idols

Scripture: Isaiah 44; Matthew 6:19-24; Colossians 3:5

We all have idols - things we pursue and trust in to make life satisfying and safe. Very often these idols are revealed by how we spend our money. However, when we deliberately choose to sacrificially share from our wealth, we break the hold of idols over our hearts, and we find contentment, freedom and joy in God.

Week FourHow to Become Generous

Most of us believe in generosity. But believing in generosity is different from actually being generous. How can we become generous, giving what we have to God from a joyful heart? We become generous by learning to give consistently, sacrificially, willingly, and wisely.
