The Generosity and Gratitude Stewardship Process is based on the Christian belief that God is exceedingly generous to us and we are deeply grateful to God for the love and blessings God has given us. We joyfully give our time, talent and treasure to God as an expression of our gratitude for all God has first given us.
“God is love, and those who remain in love remain in God and God remains in them…we love because God first loved us.” 1 John 4:16-19
Jesus: “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.” Luke 12:15
Jesus: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal…for where you treasure is there will your heart be also. …you cannot serve God and wealth.” Matthew 6:19-24
Paul: “Everyone should give whatever they have decided in their heart. They shouldn’t give with hesitation or because of pressure. God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
Paul: “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous in every way. Such generosity produces thanksgiving to God through us.” 2 Corinthians 9:11
