RE Verse reading–Genesis 1:1; Psalm 100; John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 8:8-9; Philippians 2:5-8; James1:17-18 “For God so loved the world, He GAVE His only begotten Son” (John 3:16) Welcome to the summer study of FBC. The weeks ahead look spiritually rich. Rich in insight. Rich in blessing. For 13 weeks, you are invited to a daily/weekly consideration of various texts of scripture that speak of God’s generosity (and ours) For us, generosity is a learned behavior. It rises out of gratitude. First we receive. Then we give. “To whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48) With God, generosity is original, essential, unchanging. “Every good thing given, every perfect gift. . .comes down from the Father.(James 1:17) Giving is normal for God. It always has been. May the Lord guide us all to this life-changing discovery. It may require some page turning. It will require some reflection. May He make this the most joyful summer of our lives as we meditate on this truth. We serve a generous God!
