Thanksgiving Leads to Generous Living
Last quarter we focused on the topic of financial contentment (if you missed that issue, you can read it here), knowing that contentment must first take place in a heart before true generosity can take place.

This month -- with the holidays fast approaching along with many opportunities to give to those in need -- we're focusing on generous living. While we believe generosity is a lifestyle stemming from hearts that are ready to give, all year long -- what better time is there then now to reflect on the reasons why generosity is so important?

It is our prayer that as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends next month and then celebrate the greatest Gift of all in December, that you will you will especially experience the joy of giving from a truly generous heart.

WHERE DO I BEGIN?

Sometimes we want to give, but we're not exactly sure where to begin. In the video below, Howard Dayton shares some insight on why we should be proactive in finding those in need and exactly where we should start in our search.

STORIES OF GENEROSITY
  1. This Minnesota police officer spent his last day at work giving gift cards to strangers. 
  2. Joyce Dumont has raised more than 69 children in her lifetime. Watch her story here. 
  3. When this elderly man called 911 for food, generous people responded in love. 
  4. Kansas City attorney Gene Balloun doesn't pocket a dime for his adoption cases. Instead he puts the state fees in a scholarship fund (over $600,000 to date) to help those children go to college someday. Read his story here. 
  5. This teen gave up her data plan to sponsor a child. Her parents' love for God inspired her choice. 
Emptied to be filled.  John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim's Progress, once wrote the following line:

"A man there was, though some did count him mad -- the more he cast away, the more he had." 

Bunyan spoke with much wisdom, but the idea wasn't new with him. It was, of course, in the Bible first. 

Luke 6:38 says, "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." 

When we give, we are in a sense emptying ourselves, only to be filled by God once again.
