The Genius of Generosity | ISBN: 9781733138017
In The Genius of Generosity, we’re going to discover the power, the freedom, and the rewards of developing a generous heart! The Bible teaches us that generosity is the gateway to intimacy with God. As we steward the resources God gives us, we will naturally become more generous with His things, and it pleases Him greatly. We find we are more focused on what is important to our Heavenly Father.
As believers, we all know that being selfish is completely unacceptable, but if you think that generosity is something reserved for after winning the lottery or making it into the major leagues, you’re likely going to miss something special God has planned for you. In his revised edition of The Genius of Generosity, pastor and author Chip Ingram provides motivation and practical application from Scripture to help each of us grow towards a life of greater giving.
Learning how to steward God’s resources well will powerfully impact our lives and the lives of those around us. When we begin to grasp God’s extravagant love and generosity toward us, we begin to be generous toward Him and others in His kingdom. The result: our generosity becomes a visible expression of our love for Him.
