Extravagant Generosity

Extravagant Generosity describes practices of sharing and giving that exceed all expectations and extend to unexpected measures.  It describes lavish sharing, sacrifice, and giving in service to God and neighbor.  Giving generously reprioritizes lives and helps people distinguish what is lasting, eternal, and of infinite value from what is temporary, illusory, and untrustworthy.  The discipline of generous giving places people on the balcony, helping them look out at the consumerist society with the new perspective, better able to see its traps, deceptions, and myths.  The practice of generosity is a means by which God builds people up, strengthens their spirits, and equips them to serve God’s purpose.  Giving changes both the giver and the church.

“You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity.” (2 Corinthians 9:11)
