How do you define Generosity?
Generosity is one of the most significant movements within the evangelical community, but it is also a highly debated topic among Christian leaders.
How we understand its role in the lives of believers and their surrounding Christian communities, may say more about our understanding of the gospel than any other single facet of our faith.
Let's begin with a working definition of generosity.
Generosity is at its core, a lifestyle--a lifestyle in which we share all that we have, are, or will ever become, as a demonstration of God’s love and a response to God’s grace. A church cannot merely talk about generosity, nor can individual Christians simply commit to "being generous." For generosity to be a real and powerful witness to God’s love, our actions are of much significance. Generosity flows from an understanding that all we have, are, or will ever become, is not ours to possess. Generosity results in practically sharing with others what we've been given for the advancement of the kingdom and the glory of God.
