Vital signs

Maybe you’re used to thinking of generosity as a “have-to”— of the Christian life. But its really a get to! Its the most intelligent way to live.

1. Generosity is genius because it changes our lives.

Proverbs 11:25 tells us, “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”

2. Generosity connects us with others.

There’s something very attractive about those who have a sense of kindness.

3. Generosity helps us invest in what matters.

Generosity is a guaranteed, high-yield investment. Spiritually, generosity protects us from short-sighted, bad investments of our time, our talent, and our treasure, and creates long-term wealth.

4. Generosity frees our hearts.

The principle is about something far more important than our finances; it’s a heart issue.

There are two kinds of treasures in life: those that are temporary and those that last forever. We have to decide which kind we are going to live for.

Choose wisely!
