“The Bible is the book of generosity because it is about a generous God seeking to form a generous people.”
John H. Thomas in “The Book of Generosity: Giving and Formation” workshop at the Ecumenical Stewardship Center “Stewardship Fusion” conference in Kansas City on 28 April 2015.
Thomas shared that to encourage generosity we often try to pull external triggers to get people to respond. This might produce random gifts. Meanwhile God works from the inside out.
When His Spirit is at work in our lives we become generous … the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23
Yesterday, I was blessed by speakers like Thomas. Today it’s my turn to teach. Speak through me to bless your people, Father, by your Holy Spirit, I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen!
