Whole-Life Generosity

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

– Proverbs 11:25 (NIV)

More than three thousand years ago, Solomon shared a wise way of living that sociologists would ultimately acknowledge in our day: misers are often miserable, and helpers are the happiest.  It’s true – we were created to give, and our open-handedness brings hope to others and true joy and peace to our hearts and minds.

At Calvary Chapel, we refer to this as Whole-Life Generosity!  As you live for and grow in the Lord, our goal is to inspire you to be radically generous with your…

  • Words / building others up
  • Time / serving others regularly
  • Resources / giving sacrificially
  • Family, Friends, Enemies, and Strangers / all people, all the time
  • Those who need an advocate / the most vulnerable in our world

And the great news is this: You will be refreshed as a result, living in the overflow of our most generous, giving God.
