Text: Luke 9:23-25 — Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self? [NIV84]
The Big Idea: Do we need to let go of our definition of ‘generosity’?
Lifestyle worshipers, after viewing this Francis Chan video (http://vimeo.com/32093170), do you think we need to let go of our definition of generosity? In light of this morning’s Heartwork devotion focus verses (noted above), do you think our definition of ‘generosity’ is too narrow or too broad? Too extreme or too complacent? Your thoughts?
Scriptures to Renew Your Thoughts
— 1 John 3:1 (NIV84)
— Luke 6:35-36 (NIV84)
— Titus 3:4-6 (NIV84)
Heavenly Father, transform my giving to be as generous as Yours. You gave Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, because You so Loved me. Let my Life be an extension of this Love. In Your Son’s Name, Amen.
