What does holistic generosity look like?

The first community of Christians in the book of Acts were radically generous with their possessions — because of their newly found boldness and fearlessness that came out of an assurance in Christ’s love. It was the quality of their generous community that demonstrated and proved the reality that the gospel changes lives.

At Redeemer we want to model a community of Christians who live sacrificial lives of generosity across many fronts. From opening our homes to others to forgiving those who hurt us, generosity takes many forms. Of course, this includes sacrificial giving — stewardship of your finances. Paul was talking about money when he wrote, “Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

Nevertheless, as you see, financial giving is not the only kind of generosity we need poured out at Redeemer. In fact, for many of us living and working in this busy city, the giving of time to foster new relationships or to serve in a ministry routinely may even be the more challenging form of generosity. Whatever your sacrifices would be in living a more generous life for God and for others, we invite you to consider a holistic approach that includes being generous through service to ministries, through relationships, through hospitality, through the privileges and power we hold, and lastly, through our wealth.
