The Practice of EXTRAVAGANT GENEROSITY
2 Corinthians 9:11
Generosity describes the Christian’s unselfish willingness to give in order to make a positive difference for the purposes of Christ.
Extravagant Generosity describes practices of sharing and giving that exceed all expectations and extend to unexpected measures.
Fruitful congregations thrive because of extraordinary sharing, willing sacrifice, and joyous giving out of love for God and neighbor. Such churches focus on the abundance of God’s grace and emphasize the Christian’s need to give rather than the church’s need for money.
In the spirit and manner of Christ, congregations that practice Extravagant Generosity explicitly talk about money in the Christian’s walk of faith. They are driven to be generous by a high sense of mission and a keen desire to please God by making a positive difference in the world.
