Generosity of Spirit.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Strengthened in Spirit | Week 3: Logs and Sawdust

Read Luke 6:38

1. How is Jesus’ philosophy of giving counterintuitive?
2. How does He emphasize the sheer amount we receive when we give?
3. Since Jesus is in the midst of talking about interpersonal relationships, what kind of giving do you think He’s talking about?

Are you generous in offering forgiveness and grace to others? Spend some time now thinking about your relationships with friends, family, and coworkers – with whom have you been stingy in offering these things? Confess that to God and ask Him to remind you of the great forgiveness and grace He has offered you. Pray for that reminder to soften your own spirit to the point that grace and forgiveness freely flow from you. Consider a tangible way you can express generosity of spirit toward someone this week.

For Families with Kids at Home
Pray that you would have a heart of grace and forgiveness as you parent your kids. It can be easy to get in a season of being short tempered towards your kids, but parent from a generous Spirit that draws your kids closer to Jesus.
