It's Sacrificial

In the Old Testament, God's people would from time to time make sacrificial offerings. We tend to think of sacrifice as something bad - that we're losing something. But biblically, sacrificial giving is something we do as a humbled response to God's goodness. From time to time, we want to sacrifice something for God's work - and in fact the missing of "that thing" we sacrifice reminds us of God's graciousness. Delaying a car purchase one year, reducing your level of vacation, magazine subscriptions, going to the movies - all these things we could willingly sacrifice as our gesture of appreciation to God and to support His work. Remembering, as Christians, our salvation is secured by the willing sacrifice of Christ. We recognized that as in all things, God sacrificed first - we are merely responding.

From Series: "Beyond Generous"

"I'm a 'give you the shirt off my back' kind of person." Yet, truth be told, we often don't have a full understanding of how God sees generosity and how we are to obediently honor the greatest gift we have ever been given - His Son Jesus Christ. Over the next three weeks, we will take a Biblical look at the truth about our giving and how we can be a community that lives Beyond Generous.
