We spent all of February talking about matters of the heart, hardened hearts, circumcised hearts, and guarded hearts. One of the things that tends to reveal our hearts the most is money!
Matthew 6:24 says, "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
For the month of March, in honor of St. Patrick's Day and everything green, we are going to talk about our faith as it relates to our finances. In this 3rd episode we are going to look at the promises of generosity, and why it pays to be a giver. The Scriptures we will be referencing are Proverbs 3:9-10, Proverbs 11:24, and 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.
Get your pens and pads ready, as we align our faith with our finances!

Reading Genesis 13. I mentioned previously that Abram was supposed to leave family behind, but he brought his nephew Lot. Well, it started making trouble by the next chapter. The two had to separate because they were so blessed and wealthy. Abram gave Lot the choice of where to go, and Lot chose the very best, choicest land. Abram agreed without any argument at all, and the next thing that happened was that God renewed a wonderful promise to him. And, by the way, Lot ended up in very big trouble as a result of his choice of where to live.
Abram gives us a great example of selfless generosity, which there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of in the world today. I think when we emulate Abram's example, we are also far more blessed than whatever it is we "gave up."
Assisting me is my spirit teacher Mary; we will answer questions and give love based advice on any subject. The primary intent is helping you deal with the fears that keep you from being truly happy. The focus will be on love, relationships, sexuality, money, health and spirituality. Love is: compassion, respect, and kindness, and forgiveness, generosity of spirit, humor, and appreciation. These principals of love can assist in any situation.
We will look at your past lives and what fear based beliefs you brought to this life. I will also present messages from those loved ones who have passed and what they have to say about your situation. The material they present is focused on love based answers and applying the law of attraction. I teach the art and attitude of success, a way of raising your vibration to what you desire.
Mike was reading about a friend of ours at Cape Christian in So. Florida. It brought to mind a great idea he witnessed at his local coffee hangout. He calls it a Generosity Stakeout. Waiting at a coffee shop, he, basically, bought the coffee or meal for everyone that came in. For the next hour to two, every guest ordered what they wanted and when they were to pay the cashier says, “Our friend (Mike or Tom) has picked up the tab today.” Then they point across the way to you just sitting at a table. The reactions range from a simple, “Thank you” to “Why?” – what a great way to open a door of conversation and friendship.

9 of 10 Americans confess Christianity as their religion of choice.
1 of 6 Americans live in poverty.
When I think Christianity I think generosity. If 9 of every 10 Americans practice generosity, would we have 1 of every 6 Americans living in poverty?
Too whom much is given, much is required. God tells us in this statement he expect us to be generous.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son... This statement is confirmation of giving, is it not?
God loves a cheerful giver
In our daily deeds generosity must have a place, if you are truely believers. If we have goals on the path to eternal life.

Nowadays, it can be very hard to find someone who is nice to us. We see it everyday: people talking badly about you, people treating and talking to you with an attitude, people mistreating you and the list could go on and on, but the Bible says to "love thy neighbor as thyself" and "treat others the way you want to be treated",. The Bible also tells us to be careful how we treat people because we may "entertain angels unaware"(Hebrews 13:2). Now the Generosity part comes in from kindness. Sometimes when you are kind to someone, it causes you to give. The Bible says in Proverbs 22:9 that "the generous will themselves be blessed, for they share thier food with the poor" (NIV) . So this week, we will look further into this subject with the word of God and also talk about how being kind and generous to others not only benefits them, but also rewards us at the same time.
