Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
1 Timothy 6: 18 and 19
This is really important.
One of my core beliefs is that generosity is a key to taking hold of the life that is truly life. It happens because when we are generous
We become imitators of God (THE most generous Being in the universe)
We store up treasures in heaven and then
We take hold of the life that is truly life.
Sadly, a lot of us struggle to be generous. I shared in last week’s eBlast that 62% of those who make contributions to Mountaintop give, on average, less than $5 each week. That suggests that a lot of us are missing out on becoming imitators of God, building a firm foundation and taking hold of true life.
I’m convinced that it’s not because we are stingy or greedy – most everyone wants to be generous. The problem is no one ever showed us a better way to manage our money and now we are in a mess.
This is really important – on August 24 I want to share with you a better way.
