Uh-oh. Is this one of those "The Church only wants my money" sort of things? Nope. In fact, we're starting this series in the midst of a surplus and healthy giving at NAC. Generosity is MORE than money BUT money IS a subject Jesus talked about ALOT. He knew back in the day that it was as true than as it is now, that money has the biggest potential to take us off course of being a fully devoted follower of Christ. Generosity at it's core is a lifestyle: A lifestyle in which we share all that we have as a demonstration of God's love and a response to God's grace. God is generous. If we want to "look" more like God we will absolutely have to grow in the character and attributes of generosity. But I assure you, this is not something God wants FROM you, it's something He wants FOR you.
