The Bible has much to say about giving, sharing, sacrifice, and God's amazing faithfulness! When we truly understand that all of our talent, time, and treasure come from God and that he simply asks us to keep him first in regard to all of these gifts, then living a life of generosity toward God is a joy-filled adventure!

Here are just a few Bible verses that will help you understand more about your opportunity to live a generous life in Christ.

2 Corinthians 9:7

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 

Matthew 7:11
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

1 Timothy 6:17-19
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life. 

Proverbs 11:24
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. 

Luke 6:37-38
Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

Deuteronomy 8:18
You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
