Growing in generosity (Laura Snook)

Growing in generosity (Laura Snook)

When we watch TV or scroll through social media it feels like everyone is chanting, “More! More! More!” More money, a bigger house, the trendiest clothes, the wildest adventures, etc. The message we get is that our happiness and security in life is grounded in what we can achieve, consume or own.

This month in the Transformation Trek we look at a practice from the life of Jesus that pushes against this message by declaring that it is better to give than to receive. The lives of Jesus’ followers are not marked by hoarding our resources but by sacrificially giving to help others. Let’s find joy in generosity and sacrifice, because it truly embodies the spirit of Christ within us.

In this final week we explore the widow’s offering and Paul’s teachings on cheerful and generous giving. Dive into why Jesus values the heart behind our giving more than the amount we give, and how our financial priorities reflect our understanding of generosity and sacrifice. Reflect on aligning our spending with God’s kingdom values and seek his guidance on using our resources to bless others. This week, consider how God wants you to use the resources he’s entrusted to you for his glory and the good of others.
