Encourage generosity in giving

     Rather than guilting people into giving many growing churches have discovered that even during these difficult times it is better to focus on the joy of giving. 
     Yesterday's StarTribune highlighted this trend with an article, At metro megachurches, a recession-proof gospel of giving. Again, one of life's great paradoxes is that through giving we are blessed, receiving far more than we give.
     One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.                                       Proverbs 11:24-25
