The Generous Life



Generosity will be both the theme for 2022 at Southland AND the specific series for January. We’ll unpack generosity with the series and then show how it is demonstrated in many facets of life throughout the series we share throughout the year.

Jesus teaches that generosity has no boundaries. It’s more than giving money, although that’s part of it. It’s an attitude that is rooted in love, activated by gratitude and demonstrated by offering yourself to the “least of these,” including the poor, those who don’t deserve it and those God simply puts in your life. This year we will unpack what it means to live a generous life with Jesus Christ as our example. To prepare for the message, read Luke 6.

January 23 | Generosity is Demonstrated Through the Offering of Yourself



Jesus Christ was the model of generosity. Yet His generosity was demonstrated in ways far beyond financial assistance. He left all of His glory to come to the rescue of a humanity in need. Motivated by love, He poured Himself out. First, by putting on our flesh and coming to earth in the first place. Second, by subjecting Himself to the scrutiny and abuse of the powerfully insecure. Ultimately, He accepted the physical torture and execution to take upon Himself our sins. How can I live with that kind of sacrificial generosity? Is it even possible? To prepare, read Philippians 2: 1-11.

January 30 | Generosity is Activated by Gratitude



When we experience the generosity of God and the generosity of others, we feel a deep sense of appreciation. The question is, how grateful am I for all of the generosity poured out upon me? When Paul wrote to his friends in Corinth, he explained that a grateful heart activates a generous spirit. We give out of our sincere appreciation for what we have received. To prepare, read 2 Corinthians 8:1-15.

February 6 | Generosity Promises God Will Provide All You Need


Generosity is ultimately discovered in a life of faith. I can be generous because I’m convinced the Lord not only loves me, but will provide everything I need to accomplish His will in my life. That reality empowers me to respond to every need around me with the resources that have been entrusted to me. Do I have a spirit of faith that will energize generosity within me? To prepare, read Philippians 4:10-20.
