Why Do We Give?
As believers, we model our lives after Jesus Christ. He displayed the Ultimate Generous Life. Generosity is one of the least talked about aspects of our faith. But when we look at what Jesus did on the cross, generosity was at the heart of it. He gave his life in order that we may have life. Because we follow Christ's example, each of us as believers should take part in The Generous Life.
In the ongoing rhythms of our church, Salem will be seeking to encourage all of us along the pathway toward more generous lives and giving habits. The Generous Life pathway above portrays our own personal journey of discipleship and the potential development of all of us as we begin wherever we are. As we grow, our goal is to advance the Kingdom of God as well as increasing our personal generosity.
