Generosity is paradoxical. Those who give, receive back in turn. Generosity is at the heart of discipleship and human flourishing. But here is another paradox: although generosity is good for us, generosity is often elusive for us. While we all want to be generous people most of us struggle to be generous. The struggle to achieve and accumulate more and more frequently threatens to overwhelm us and we often find we don’t have the time or the resources to be as generous as we’d like.
In this series we’ll explore the importance of generosity to the Christian walk and two spiritual practices that are essential to becoming a more generous person.
