Secondchair church leaders don’t preach very often. It’s not part of their role. I preach 2-3 times per year and that’s fine with me. I’ve been a sr pastor before and preached every Sunday but I prefer teaching in groups over preaching. This Sunday I am filling the pulpit while our sr pastor is gone. I have chosen to speak on the topic of Generosity. I am approaching the topic with this thread:
Generosity is an attribute of God. He is generous toward us because we are his treasure.
Generosity is an attribute of a Christ-follower. They are generous toward God and others because Jesus is their treasure.
We will dive into 2 Corinthians 9.6-15 and explore our motives for giving. Do we give out of obligation? Do we give to get? Or do we give to give more?
So, I was just wondering? How has God demonstrated his generosity toward you recently? Would you care to share your story?
