Here’s a great resource from Everence: Generous Living in a Self-Centered World: Biblical Models of Generosity. This resource is a six-week course in which you will be introduced to a variety of generosity models found in scripture.  Our challenge as 21st-century followers of Jesus is to take the lessons described in scripture, understand their context and then apply the time-tested principles to our own day. This is no small challenge, but worth the effort. In this study, you will start with the story of Cain and Abel from Genesis 4 and end with the Apostle Paul.  You will explore a variety of biblical stories and discuss the connection with our first-world American context.

The best part of this study is that you can go to the Everence website and download all the material free of charge! See to download.
