Growing in Generosity: Ways to Give

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son” (John 3:16). 


Generosity is not an incidental part of the Christian life, but at the very heart of God and at the heart of our life in Christ.

As Christians, we worship a generous God, whose very nature is self-giving love – a love manifested most clearly in the offering of God’s own son on the cross for the sake of the world.

It follows, then, that as we grow in Christ and become more like him, we, too, will become more generous and giving.  Indeed, one of the nine fruits of the Spirit that the Apostle Paul lists in his letter to the Galatians – fruits that demonstrate that God is at work among us and within us – is generosity (c.f. Galatians 5:22).
