Generosity requires a plan. But how do you make a plan? These two simple gauges will help you decide where and how much to give. — Andy Stanley #CrazyLikeUs

Everyone gives something somewhere to someone. But that only masks the fact that we don’t know how to be generous. Generosity isn’t about how to give. It is more than random acts of giving. Persuasive people can inspire or guilt us into giving. But generous people don’t need to be sold or guilted. They plan to give. If you choose to become generous—to plan to give—you’ll give more, consume less, and have more left over.

Being radically generous may seem crazy, but Jesus said the alternative is crazier. It reduces you to an owner and a consumer. It leaves you discontented. And no matter what you choose, you will eventually lose possession of your stuff anyway. So choose your crazy. But remember: happy is the person whose life is ordered around giving rather than receiving.  — Andy Stanley #CrazyLikeUs

Scripture: Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 1 Corinthians 16:1-3 1 Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. 3 Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem.
