Five Essential Spiritual Practices
Let's Focus on the Fourth Essential Spiritual Practice:


Generosity is at the heart of God. As He is loving, kind, merciful, and just, He is also generous. He is the giver of all good gifts, and He is faithful to meet our needs. Jesus teaches His followers to be generous. The following are some of the things He wants us to know and follow.

1. God is the author of generosity. Every good gift comes from God
(James 1:17).

2. God blesses us, and He wants us to use His blessings to bless others. “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” (1 John 3:17).

3.We are stewards not owners. God desires that we use “His” resources responsibly for the good of others. “So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” (Luke 16:11).

4. Jesus showed us that generosity is a heart issue. What we are inside will inevitably show up on the outside. He reminded the pharisees that though they justify themselves in the eyes of men, “God knows your hearts” (Luke 16:15).

5. Jesus teaches us not to value the wrong things. This may be our greatest sin. Instead of valuing the eternal, we hang on to those things which are passing away. We treasure that which is only for a season and think lightly of eternal principles. “What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight” (Luke 16:15).

Jesus teaches us to learn God’s true treasures and use them to bless others and glorify Him.
  1. Give Your Love
  2. Give Your Time
  3. Give Your Money
  4. Give Your Prayers
  5. Give Your Skills and Talents

Psalm 100:4-5
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.
