Sunday to Monday | Lavish Generosity

On Sunday Pastor Dave shared the importance of generosity.  Several of Rock Canyon High School youth described  the awesome experience of raising funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation and how the generous donations enabled them to raise over $60,000 this year surpassing last year's $40,000 which gives hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions.  Kathryn Ake also shared her testimony and invited everyone to grow one step in their financial giving.

Here's some thoughts for this week:

  • If someone asked you if your generosity was ‘biblically lavish,” how would you respond? John 12:1-8
  • When has someone practiced “lavish generosity” on you? How did you feel? What did the action of the other do to your relationship? (When have you given in a lavish way? How did you feel? What did the action do for the relationship?)
  • Imagine for a moment you are at the dinner party with Mary, Martha, Jesus and the recently resurrected Lazarus. What blessing might God give you from that encounter?
  • Do you want to grow as a follower of Jesus? Jesus is a servant who gives himself away, that others might have life (John 10:10). Pray in regards to all that God has first given you, and how Christ might lead you into the blessing of greater generosity.
