I want you to take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Get settled. Allow the stress of the week to fade away. Now I want you to imagine what it would look like for you to be financially free. What would it really look like for you to have financial freedom? Now, what if you could actually experience financial freedom today? What if financial freedom is actually found in the paradox of generosity?

Generosity makes the world a better place. It improves the life of the receiver and enhances the life of the giver. Yet somehow, generosity remains far too uncommon in our world today. Instead, our culture craves and pursues more at every turn. We seek happiness by directing most of our resources towards our own pursuits: security, possessions, experiences, pleasure, and luxury. There’s something underneath the surface of our lives that drives our behavior, something that causes us to cling tighter to things that won’t ultimately satisfy. With this backdrop in mind, the Bible calls us to a counter-culture way of living, a kind of living that only emerges when we adopt a radically new perspective.
