A People of Generosity in an Age of Scarcity

One of the most convenient aspects of modern life in America is being able to have things quickly delivered right to our front doors. However, when this convenience is disrupted by things like the pandemic or supply chain issues, or even more likely, tighter budgets and larger bills, it reveals much about what we trust. How can we become a people of generosity in an age of scarcity, and live into the truth that it is "more blessed to give than to receive"?

Scripture References: 2 Corinthians 8:1-15

From Series: "Zeitgeist"

Noah was called “a righteous man, blameless in his generation” and in Acts 2 Peter urges those he is preaching to “to save themselves from this corrupt generation”. In a one sense this idea of those living faithful, committed lives is true for all people in all generations. There has always been and there always will be this remnant of the faithful in all generations. In another sense, each generation must, in the words of Jesus (Luke 12:54-56) “interpret the present time” in order to rise to the challenge of today. What are those challenges to faithful discipleship in today's "zeitgeist" or "spirit of the age", and what type of people is God calling us to become today?
