SCRIPTURE

Joshua 35-36

BIG IDEA

When we listen to God, we respond by giving Him everything.

OUTLINE

Basic Giving Principles 

  • God owns everything.
  • God gives generously.
  • Imitate God by giving.
  • God is more interested in your attitude than your assets.
  1. A generous heart gives joyfully.
    • Willingly
    • Capacity
  2. Three ways to Give
    • Past Resources
    • Present Resources
    • Future Resources
  3. God’s Power in Group Giving
  4. Joyfully chose to make life style changes: For Go It.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Does talking about giving and generosity make you uncomfortable? What in your history leads to that feeling?
  2. What are the top items on your list to “For Go It?” If you chose to.
  3. Exodus 35:4-5, 21 talks about giving with a generous heart. How do you believe God receives a begrudging gift? How much is our giving worthwhile if we do give begrudgingly?
  4. Deuteronomy 8:17-18 reminds us from where wealth and talents come. How do you understand verse 18? Do you believe it? Why?
  5. Ultimately, all giving boils down to a heart issue. If you are a follower of Jesus, there really is no other way to look at it. Describe the status of your heart as a joyful giver today. How has that changed in the last three years?

NEXT STEP

  • I will pray about my understanding of generosity and choose to give joyfully and without bitterness.
