Scripture:

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

Scripture Mark 12:41-44 (NIV)

The Widow’s Offering

41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.

43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

"Wake"

 

At break of day, in hope we rise.

We speak Your Name, we lift our eyes.

Tune our hearts into Your beat.

Where we walk, there You'll be.

 

With fire in our eyes, our lives a-light.

Your love untamed, it's blazing out.

The streets will glow forever bright.

Your glory's breaking through the night.

 

You will never fade away, Your love is here to stay

By my side, in my life, shining through me everyday.

 

You wake within me, wake within me. 

You're in my heart forever.

 

With fire in our eyes, our lives a-light.

Your love untamed, it's blazing out.

The streets will glow forever bright.

Your glory's breaking through the night.

 

You will never fade away, Your love is here to stay

By my side, in my life, shining through me everyday.

 

You wake within me, wake within me. 

You're in my heart forever.

 

Forever, forever, forever in Your love.

 

You will never fade away, Your love is here to stay

By my side, in my life, shining through me everyday.

 

You wake within me, wake within me. 

You're in my heart forever.

 


          

CONTAGIOUS GENEROSITY

"Generous Life"

November 2, 2014

 

Warm Up:

What do you think about when you hear the phrase "Generous God = Generous Life"?

 

Diving In:

 1) What is your reaction to the scripture reading Mark 12:41-44 and the story of the widow's offering?

 

2) Biblical Principles for Giving:

  • Everything comes from God
  • Give off the top
  • Choose a percentage
  • Grow towards tithing and beyond

 

In what ways are these principles helpful? Challenging?

 

3) In his book "I Like Giving" Mark Batterson shares the following:

 

“When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change and so does the world around you. Something incredible happens when giving becomes your own idea, not something you do out of duty or obligation. When you move from awareness to action, miracles happen. As you make giving a lifestyle, you'll realize you're not only loving life more, you're also creating a more generous world - a better world for all of us.”

 

What is your reaction to this quote and why?

 

Take Home:

Consider these two questions:

1) When have you been blessed by the generosity of others?

2) In what ways is God encouraging you to be generous?
