Generous Is Who We Are

People who live life openhanded are considered generous people. They are people who willingly give of their time, talents and resources. In former years generous referred to people who were highborn. Highborn meaning they had been born of noble birth. Indicating that they had more than most therefore enabling them to be generous.

God calls followers of Jesus Christ to be generous people - to live life openhanded. 

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 1 Timothy 6:18
Think about it. Who is higher born than a follower of Jesus Christ? Who has more to give than we do? After all our Father owns it all!

Thank You! people of Atlee Community Church for being so generous. I am so proud to pastor a church of such generous people. These are the donations that have come in just today for the homeless and just in time for the cold weather.

2012 is going to be another great year filled with opportunities for us, the church, to make a difference in our community. Remember as followers of Jesus Christ - generous is not what we do, its who we are!

  1. Thank you for using "generous" as the word. It reflects who God is and who we, as the children of God, should strive to be. Thanks!
