“You really can grow generosity without preaching more on money. Preaching more on money is not your solution.”
“So, you just take those three things: God is a generous God. We are created in His image. And giving feels awesome for everybody. However, when we get to the church on Sunday morning, none of those things seem to matter.”
“…We measure our success on how much money comes in, and it feels very transactional, as opposed to leading with transformation.”
“The very first story in the entire bible, about the very first family doing their very first activity together, is a generosity activity.”
“The Church has just fallen behind in what’s very normal out there in the culture today.”
“People don’t want to give to a problem… They want to give to something that’s making an impact.”
“Two of the biggest giving heroes in the bible: the widow and her mite, and the young boy with the fishes. It’s not about amount. It’s about hearing God’s Word, being obedient, and letting Him take care of the rest.”
