Statements we have heard, endorse but honestly find a bit impossible or put in the file with a perfect world.

  1. It is better to give than to receive

  2. Love the Lord your God with all your heart

  3. You can’t outgive God

  4. God loves a cheerful giver

I love to give. But I want God to live by faith in me!

John 15:9-11

Now remain in my LOVE. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my LOVE, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his LOVE. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

Big Idea: Jesus has given you a new heart, but the powers of this world shut down a generous and cheerful heart.

Love of Stuff locks down a cheerful heart.

Luke 12:15 ESV

And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Trying to love both worlds locks down a generous heart.

Matthew 6:24 ESV

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 ESV

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.

Waiting to give locks down a Joyful heart.

Proverbs 11:24 ESV
