Reflections on Rob’s Sermon from Thanksgiving Sunday, October 11th, 2015
 
 
We Value Generosity: We are committed to being a generous community, giving freely and cheerfully of our attention, abilities, resources, time, and spiritual gifts.
 
Texts: 2 Corinthians 9:10-15, Matthew 25:31-45, Mark 12:41-44, 1 Timothy 6:17-19
 
A Few Questions to Consider:
1. Read through the four texts together. What things jumped out as you read? What do you notice about generosity?
 
2. How is generosity both an attitude and an action? In what ways do you see God producing a great harvest of generosity in your life and in the life of Emmanuel? What are things that are hindering generosity?
 
3. How does having an attitude of gratitude change the way one lives, especially in respect to living generously?
 
4. In what ways do you struggle with generosity? What is one area of generosity you would like to grown in?
 
5. What is one act of generosity you could do collectively as a small group?
