Text: 1 Chronicles 29: 13-14

The more we do for God the more we are indebted to him for the honor of being employed in his service, and for grace enabling us, in any measure, to serve him.  Henry, M. (1994).  When an individual has the character to possess the “Gift of Giving” they display an inner humility and the courage to be honorable.

Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, which He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

(Acts 20:35b) – Paul is saying this is the generosity factor!  Paul gives us a wonderful model of leadership – he told them what they must do, he had already demonstrated what that would look like and now he takes time to introduce them to his greatest weapon:  (Acts 20:36) “And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all.” 

Here is the “Generosity Factor” – if you can’t give them everything they will need, then you pray with them, and you pray for them, to a God who is able to meet their every need.

Every worship service should be a joyful celebration of the mighty acts of God through Jesus Christ.  (Stott says) If joy in God is an authentic work of the Spirit, so is the fear of God.  (Stott, 1990)  When the church is producing this balance in its worship and the fellowship and love throughout its membership, and when the Church is praising God and having favor with all the people (v.47) …The Lord added to the Church daily those who were being saved.

Godly giving requires talking to God and listening to God.  God requires that we be stewards over our wealth.  It all belongs to Him.  Doesn’t it seem right that since it belongs to Him that we consult Him about what we choose to do with the wealth?
