This Sunday brings our final topic in the series: “Defined by Generosity.” What defines your life? Is it wealth? belongings? faith? Many of us live with a scarcity mentality, worried that we must gather and hoard as much as possible, saving for some imagined “rainy day.” Or we focus on self-gratification. But the Bible promises both God’s blessings and joy for those who choose to live another way.

Prayer for the Week

God is the owner and I am the ower~ Offering Liturgy from Church of the Savior in Washington D.C.

Scripture Readings for the Week

Monday:

Read Matthew 25:14-21. Like the master, God has given us things in life that we are “in charge of.” What has God put you “in charge of” in your life, and how are you managing it?

Tuesday:

​Read Mark 12:41-44. What does it mean to give sacrificially? Has anyone ever sacrificed something so that you could have something? What was that like for you? How has this generous person affected your own vision of what matters in life?

Wednesday:

Read Matthew 25:34-40. One motivation to be generous is to think the person may be Christ. What moves you or motivates you to be generous?

Thursday:

Read Luke 19:1-10. How did Jesus demonstrate generosity to Zacchaeus? What did Zacchaeus do in response? When have you been changed by someone else’s generosity toward you? When have you given something that brought you great joy?

Friday:

Read Luke 12:41-48. How much do you believe you have been given? How close are you to doing all that you can do with what you have been given? What practical steps can you take to increase your generosity in the next twelve months?
