Generosity is not an act we hope to accomplish someday if we have enough left over. It is a lifestyle God requires from those who follow Jesus Christ. It is also a pathway to a truly joyful and transformed life.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
