1/ God’s access to our hearts follows familiar pathways. One of those pathways is our money. (Mt 6:21)
2/ The road to happiness is clearly marked but seldom traveled. And that road is called generosity. (Acts 20:35)
3/ Some of you are giving, but you’re not experiencing God deeply and you’re not experiencing very much happiness.
4/ How can I give in a way that gives God deeper access to my heart and greater joy in my heart?
5/ Giving that costs you nothing isn’t giving.
6/ "Consecrate yourselves," give as an act of unconditional surrender.
7/ Tim Keller: "Lord, I’ll serve you and I’ll give to you if you…,” whatever is on the other side of the “if” is your real god.
8/ John Piper: “The giving of money for the house of God was the work of God to reveal God so that we would stand in awe of God.”
9/ Your heart will be most engaged in your giving when you are most engaged in that to which you give.
10/ Give as a response to God's grace. 2 Corinthians 8 - An Act of Grace = Giving
