#28: The Generous God

God no longer lives in a temple made of stone. He lives in temples made of flesh. There is no longer a priestly group who make sacrifices on our behalf, rather we are all made priests by Christ and are all invited to the way of sacrificial love.
— Jonathan Puddle

Our church doesn’t teach tithing but we do believe in generosity. Why? Because God is generous. He creates all of the universe and offers it to us as a gift, then he just keeps on giving, and invites us to do likewise. The early church understood this and gave to everyone in a way that turned both heads and hearts. This episode includes a sermon I preached on the subject of generosity and how God’s model of giving everything, at all times, to everyone, sets a standard that goes way beyond Israel’s tithe.
