What do you treasure?
- read Acts 20:25-35
Why do you think Christians are often blind to their own lack of generosity?
25 And now, behold, I know that none of you among whom I have gone about proclaiming the kingdom will see my face again. 26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all, 27 for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. 28 Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. 29 I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. 31 Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears. 32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. 34 You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities and to those who were with me. 35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
What would your spending habits say that you treasure most?
When have you felt enslaved by a treasure? Have you ever been enslaved without recognizing it? What happened?
"Jesus is the one treasure that died to purchase you… All other treasures demand that you do anything to get them, but Jesus Christ did anything to get you."
How does recalling God's love for us and Christ's sacrifice on the cross impact your generosity?
Do you believe that you are God's treasure? What Scripture passages can you think of that point to the value God places on His children?
The more you begin to see how precious you are in the sight of God — that Jesus lost everything on the cross so that He might spend eternity with you — the more that you'll see Him as your ultimate treasure. The more He becomes your ultimate treasure, the more generous you'll become.
- Matthew 22:21
