Generosity as a Way of Life

I have known Mark Vincent for several years. He has presented seminars on Christian stewardship at our ministerial conferences in the United States and Europe. His challenging but highly effective approach is to show how a Christian can structure his or her resources around the concept of generosity and giving. Our congregation in Cincinnati, Ohio, engaged Vincent Oct. 30 to help them plan their course for the future. After the seminar, John Halford interviewed himWe thought you might find their conversation interesting.

The Grace of Giving - 2 Corinthians 8

When Paul met with the original apostles, they agreed to divide the mission field — Paul would focus on the gentiles, and they would focus on the Jews (Gal. 2:9). But they did make one request of Paul: that he remember that many believers in Jerusalem needed financial help (2:10).

We live in financially uncertain times. The stock market is bouncing up and down, several banks have been consolidated, it’s getting harder to get a loan, and people are losing their jobs. Here at the church’s administrative center in Glendora we are cutting our budgets, because our donation income might go down.

Economic problems have complex causes, but one of the biggest causes is greed. Today, I’d like to talk about the opposite of greed: generosity. Our lives need to be characterized by generosity, not greed.
