Be Rich – Extravagant in Giving

About This Talk

Generosity is about being open-handed instead of closed-fisted. We can be generous with what we have, with our time and with what we say. We need to remember that God has been generous to us so we too should be generous to others and come more like the God we follow. Find out more in this message.

Generosity …

is the antidote to selfishness

springs from hoping in God

is the fruit of godliness

About The Series

17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

1 Timothy 6:17

We demonstrate the love of God when we give, serve, and love others—both in our community and around the world. Together, we’ll unleash a wave of generosity. No-strings-attached generosity was the hallmark of the first-century church. It should be a hallmark of the twenty-first-century church too.

The apostle Paul told Timothy, ‘Command those who are rich in this present world . . . to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.‘ – 1 Timothy 6:18.

Most people want to make a difference but don’t know how. Be Rich makes it simple.

Through the Be Rich campaign we will come together to Give, to Serve and to Love individuals and organisations so that communities can be transformed. After all, our extravagant generosity toward others is the most appropriate response to God’s extravagant generosity toward us.
