Giving: Growing Joyful Stewards in Your Congregation volume 19 is titled "Live Generously". It is the third in a four-year series based on I Timothy 6:18-19: “They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.” "Live Generously" also focuses on 2 Corinthians 8:9: “For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.”
Giving volume 19 is packed with many outstanding reflective and practical articles to encourage generous giving and faithful stewardship. Articles and writers include:
- "A Theological Foundation for Generous Giving" by William Enright;
- "God’s Economic Delivery System", an excerpt from the book The Christian Wallet: Spending, Living, and Giving with a Conscience by Mike Slaughter;
- "How An Annual Stewardship Emphasis can Strengthen Generosity in Your Congergation" by Keith Mundy;
- "Millennial Generosity" by Amanda Garcia.
The center section of the magazine outlines a simple response method for an annual congregational stewardship emphasis which can be used "as is" or supplemented with additional theme materials and companion resources.
