I had meeting with a friend of mine, who is a very generous person. I asked him about his generosity. I asked, “How did you come to point of being as generous as you are?”
He said, “Ed Young, I learned a while back that it ain’t about me. It’s about him. It’s all from him. When I am a river, and not a reservoir, I have a loose grasp on the things of this earth.”
That’s what God wants. Generosity is all about God.
Here is another statement. Generosity is all about lifestyle. It should transcend everything we say, do, touch, feel and act. – Ed Young Fellowship.
1 Corinthians 16:2 says, “On the first day of the week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income.”
Ed speaks in Fellowship Church Grapevine. I don’t know about you, but I need a regular reminder that Jesus is running the show in my life. That’s just me talking. I need a regular reminder that Jesus is the CEO. He’s calling the shots. Because, if I don’t have a regular weekly reminder through worship and through something tangible, like giving, then I think that I run the show. I think that Ed is calling the shots. I think that Ed is the man. You are the same way. That’s why the Bible says, time and time again, that it’s all about treasure. Where your treasure is, that’s where your heart is. It’s the treasure test. God knew that we would have such a problem with money.
He knew, that when we had stuff and made money, that we would think it is ours. That’s why he said time and time again that we are to give some of it away — regularly, weekly, strategically, and intentionally. It reminds us that everything we have is God’s, that we don’t have stuff. We are just managers. We are just stewards of it. He’s the owner of it.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
