Week 4: Reflect
Spend some time reflecting on the following questions:
- Who modeled generosity in your life growing up, if anyone?
- How have you seen giving talked about along your Christian journey – have you been encouraged by others to be a “tickled tither,” “a generous giver,” or has it never been spoken of?
- How do you feel about raising money for the sake of the Kingdom?
