Read: 2 Corinthians 9:7-9

God wants you to give generously of your time, talent and treasure. Here are three ways you can give generously.

1.Give spontaneously.
When the Good Samaritan helped someone in need, he also paid the innkeeper to look after him and offered to pay any extra expenses when he returned. Sometimes, we need to give when we are least expecting to.

2.Give strategically.
Sometimes it’s great to give spontaneously but to truly be generous, we have to make a plan to give on a consistent basis especially to God and His Church.  Generous people plan to do what is generous, and they stand firm in their generosity. Isaiah 32:8

3.Give sacrificially.
When Jesus saw a poor widow offer two small coins, he said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” God blesses us anytime we sacrifice since he first sacrificed for us.
