God Is The God Of Blessing 

A generous life reflects God’s character. 

Three Blessing Lessons from the Bible: 

1. Our blessings come from God through Jesus. 

  • Genesis 12:2
  • Jesus shifted the focus of blessing from an earthly perspective to a heavenly perspective.
  • Ephesians 1:3
  • Matthew 5:11-12
  • To be blessed in not a feeling or emotion; it’s a state of being because of our relationship in Christ. 

2. God blesses us so that we can bless others. 

  • 1 Timothy 6:18
  • Don’t keep God’s blessings to yourself!
  • Hebrews 13:16

3. When we bless others, God blesses us in return. 

  • Luke 6:38
  • You cannot out-give God.
  • 2 Corinthians 9:6
  • Psalm 112:5
  • Proverbs 22:9
  • Luke 12:48b

When God blesses you financially, don’t raise your standard of living.  Raise your standard of giving.
