This Sunday we start a two week series looking at generosity, and why being generous is so important - you may be surprised by the conclusions. It has the potential to be a life changing message, so please plan to be there both weeks if you can - if not be sure to listen to the podcasts.
We're going to be spending the two weeks in these verses which Paul wrote to his young friend Timothy. If you get a chance why not spend some time reading through these verses through before Sunday.
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (1 Timothy 6:17-19 NIVUK)
